“After seeing the kind of life that girls who endure FGM are leading I really didn’t want Purity to go through such a life”
Abigail is amazing. When she was 13, a girl in her village died as a result of female genital mutilation (FGM), right before Abigail herself was meant to be cut. She ran away to avoid the same fate and even came back to help her best friend Purity escape when it was her time to undergo FGM. Now both Abigail and Purity are living in an ActionAid supported safe house and are back in school. Way to go girls!
