لاس فيغاس 10 فبراير/ شباط – ستفتح أول مستشفى في العالم لإصلاح البظر لضحايا تشويه الأعضاء التناسلية الأنثوية (ختان الإناث)، أبوابها في يوم السابع من مارس/ آذار، في بوبو ديولاسو ، ببوركينا فاسو، وذلك وفقاً لبيان صدر اليوم عن كليتوريد، وهي منظمة غير ربحية، ومقرها الولايات المتحدة. وسوف تقوم شانتال كومباوري، السيدة الأولى في بوركينا فاسو، بترأس حفل الافتتاح.
تم بناء المستشفى بالتبرع من خلال جهود المتطوعين في جميع أنحاء العالم .
وتقول مديرة الاتصالات في كليتوريد، نادين غاري: " إن دعم شانتال كومباوري وحضورها في هذا اليوم لهو وسيلة رائعة للاحتفال بهذا الافتتاح!." وقالت أيضا "أنها كانت الصوت الصامد ضد فظائع تشويه الأعضاء التناسلية الأنثوية، ونحن يشرفنا انها سوف تكون هناك."
وأضافت غاري "أن المئات من النساء هن بالفعل على قائمة الانتظار بكليتوريد، ولسوف تكون الجراحة مجانية لأي امرأة تريد ذلك."
وتقول أيضاً "إن "وقت الانتظار قد انتهى تقريباَ" وإن المنشأة الجديدة "كومكاسو" والتي تعني " منزل النساء "، قد تم إطلاق لقب "مستشفى المتعة" عليها، حيث أن "العملية جراحية تعمل على استعادة كرامتهن وكذلك قدرتهن على تجربة المتعة الجسدية ، الذي قد سُلبت منهن " .
وتوضح غاري كيف جاءت فكرة المستشفى قائلة:
بعدما سمع رائيل، الزعيم الروحي للحركة الرائيلية - المُلقب بـ "المايتريا"، عن الإجراء الإصلاحي المبتكر للبظر والذي وضعه الدكتور الفرنسي بيير فولدس، ظهرت منظمة كلتوريد كفكرة لبناء العيادات التي تقدم جراحة مجانية إلى أي ضحية من ضحايا ختان الإناث تريد ذلك " .
وقالت "أن الجراحين المتطوعين من الولايات المتحدة في كليتوريد، والدكتور مارسي باورز، دكتوراه في الطب، والدكتور هارولد هينينج الابن، دكتوراه في الطب، سيقومون بإجراء تلك العمليات الجراحية في المستشفى الجديد، وكذلك تدريب جراحين آخرين للقيام بذلك."
وأضافت أن " الهدف من ذلك هو مساعدة أكبر عدد ممكن من الضحايا بهذه الجراحة، و التي من شأنها أن تساعد أيضا على تثبيط الممارسة الوحشية لختان الإناث ". وقالت أيضاً "عندما يكون شيء آثاره السيئة قابلة للإنعكاس جراحيا ومجاناً، فماذا بوسعنا أن نفكر؟".

LAS VEGAS, March 4 –Clitoraid, a Las Vegas-based nonprofit organization that helps victims of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) obtain clitoral repair surgery in the United States and Africa, will commemorate International Women’s Day in a memorable and unique way, according to Clitoraid representative Nadine Gary.

“On March 10, International Women’s Day, from 2 to 4 p.m., we’re holding a public, fundraising flashmob on the sidewalk between the Paris Hotel and Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip," Gary said in a statement released today by Clitoraid "This event is a highlight of our annual 'Adopt a Clitoris' fundraising campaign and the choreography for it was created by a Clitoraid volunteer, Lia Steinman. We need surgical equipment and other furnishings to open the world’s first clitoral restoration hospital for FGM victims in Burkina, Faso, West Africa, this October. This event and the help of the public can bring us closer to our goal!”

Gary said Clitoraid and its dream of a clitoral repair hospital were launched by international spiritual leader Maitreya Rael in 2007.

“He noticed that no organization yet existed to help FGM victims have the new clitoral repair procedure devised by French surgeon Dr. Pierre Foldes,” Gary explained. “Victims will have the surgery at our ‘pleasure hospital’ for free, thanks to Clitoraid’s volunteer surgeons and other staff. Over 400 patients are already on our waiting list!”

Men and women alike are invited to participte in the Las Vegas flashmob event.

"Please join us at this flashmob to dance and donate for FGM victims,” Steinman added. “International Women’s Day is a great day to symbolically stand up for women’s equal gender rights worldwide, including the fundamental right of each and every woman to feel sexual pleasure.”

Movement’s goal: to end violence against women worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14 – Today, in conjunction with the V-Day Movement launched by Eve Ensler, Clitoraid, a nonprofit organization that assists victims of female genital mutilation (FGM), is supporting and participating in “One Billion Rising,” an international call to end violence against women.

“In San Francisco, our head surgeon, Dr. Marci Bowers, M.D., will perform clitoral repair surgery for two FGM victims at her San Mateo Clinic,” said Nadine Gary, Clitoraid’s director of communications.

Bowers, well known for her gender reassignment surgeries, has been volunteering for Clitoraid since 2009, according to Gary.

“To date, she has operated on close to 40 FGM patients, and in October she will travel to Burkina Faso, West Africa, for the opening of our new hospital,” Gary said. “At that time, she will begin operating on the more than 400 FGM victims currently on our waiting list for clitoral repair surgery.”

Gary said today’s One Billion Rising event is the perfect occasion for Clitoraid volunteers to rise up and dance.

“That’s especially true for our team in Burkina Faso, West Africa,” she said. “They’ll gather at what we call our ‘Pleasure Hospital,’ which is where Dr. Bowers and other volunteers will be helping FGM victims once the facility opens in October.”

Gary then cited some alarming statistics concerning violence against women.

“One in three women living today – a total of one billion women worldwide – will be raped or beaten within her lifetime, and every 6 minutes, a little girl is being genitally mutilated,” she said. “These atrocities must be eliminated. Therefore, for the 15th anniversary of V-Day on February 14, Clitoraid supporters around the world will join those one billion abused women and those who love them. We’ll walk, dance, and above all else, rise up and demand an end to the violence.”

Gary said Clitoraid has always supported Ensler’s efforts to end violence against women.

“We applaud her for such things as setting up safe houses in Kenya to protect girls and women who have fled their homes rather than become FGM victims,” Gary said, adding that Clitoraid’s participation in One Billion Rising will also include raising awareness about Clitoraid’s work by holding special events.

“We’re holding community awareness events throughout the United States and Canada, in European countries like France, Switzerland and Italy; in Australia and South America, and in Southeastern Asia, where large numbers of potential FGM victims are at high risk in Indonesia,” Gary concluded.
