Save a little Desert Flower:
An initiative by the Desert Flower Foundation (DFF)

Every 11 seconds, a girl in the world is cut. Every third girl cut dies as a result of FGM and many suffer a lifetime of both physical and psychological trauma.

“With the establishment of the Desert Flower Foundation in 2002, we have declared war on this cruel ritual”

In 2015, together with the DFF, we will start the sponsorship campaign: “Save a little Desert Flower”.

With your help, thousands of girls can be saved from genital mutilation. Get involved, learn and talk about us. Learn here about all the many ways you can help:
