ICOD Action Network is a nonprofit that builds support communities for babies, girls and women forced to undergo Female Genital Mutilation to get reconstructive surgery. Every month we serve 1000+ patients and our reproductive health projects reach over hundreds more. Our supporters here supported our previous campaign that supported three of our patients to get reconstructive surgery in September. This holiday season, please help us raise $2040 to support 10 more patients go for surgery on December 21.
