Intent on taking a stand against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Nicole Moudaber has launched a new charity named ELEVEN.
Well-known for her epic underground releases and sets that take listeners to the moon, MOOD Records boss Nicole Moudaber has set her sights on making a positive impact on the world. Today, she has officially launched a charity campaign dubbed ELEVEN, which intends to raise awareness about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and generate funds to help prevent it from happening further.
All proceeds from ELEVEN will go directly to Magool, which was created by human rights activist and psychotherapist Leyla Hussein to support survivors of FGM and work towards ending the practice. Throughout the campaign, Nicole invites anyone from around to world to help her stand up for the rights of girls who have suffered the outcomes of this practice and others who are at risk of it happening to them.
What is FGM? The Female Genital Mutilation procedure involves partial or total removal of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons, with the extreme side effects including cysts, infections, infertility, and even death. Every 11 seconds a girl is affected by FGM, with over 200 million women globally and approximately 3.6 million more girls at risk every year, the harmful process is carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15.
Launched on International Day of the Girl Child, ELEVEN hopes to raise awareness about this form of child abuse. Influencers, musicians, celebrities, and everyone who would like to take a stand against this human rights issue can now come together to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
