Female genital mutilation endangers the lives of young girls, often creating health problems when they later give birth. Sometimes, it is even fatal, as it was in the case of 13-year-old Soher from Egypt — where, although the practice is illegal, around 80 percent of girls born to poor families are subject to FGM. Edna Adan University Hospital and Tostan are two organizations working to end FGM.
