FGM survivor trains Newham nurses about FGM
by Kay Atwal
A group of school nurses discovered the risks of female genital mutilation and the complications associated with the practice from a woman who survived the ordeal.
Campaigner Alimatu Dimonekene, who was cut at the age of 16 while living in Sierra Leone, led the training session in Canning Town held specifically for school nurses to make them aware of the practice which is now illegal here.
She has also held similar sessions with adult social workers in Newham to make them aware of the risks and complications associated with FGM.
