NSPCC launch female genital mutilation helpline

NSPCC launch female genital mutilation helpline

A helpline has been launched to protect UK children from female genital mutilation, after findings from the NSPCC that more than 70 women and girls seek treatment every month, from as young as seven.

Over 1,700 victims were referred to specialist clinics in the last two years. However, the charity believes the true number of victims is even higher as only a tiny fraction come forward for medical help. Those who do are usually adults with maternity problems.
