FGM survivor hopes practice will be stamped out in her lifetime

Saran Dioubate

Music superstar Angelique Kidjo recently performed at the United Nations in a concert calling for an end to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

As a child in her native country, Guinea, Saran and several other little girls from her neighbourhood underwent the practice, which is also known as cutting.

Dianne Penn reports.
