At least 40 women who have faced female genital mutilation (FGM) are undergoing restorative surgery by a US-based non-profit organisation.  Nadine Gary, the organisation’s spokeswoman, said the plastic surgery would be conducted by Marci Bowers, a gynaecological surgeon, and other partners. Dr Bowers is also expected to offer training in conducting the surgery for local doctors during her stay in the country.

“She’ll present the restorative technique developed by French urologist Pierre Foldes. Also participating will be Clemence Linard, our clinical sexologist in France, who will offer patients counselling and share her expertise with Kenyan sexologist Tammary Esho, who has volunteered to assist,” said Ms Gary. The surgeries that began on May 2 will continue up to May 13. A United Nations Children’s Fund report indicates that a quarter of Kenyan women are victims of FGM.
