Over 200 million women alive today have suffered through FGC. Three million are expected to be cut this year alone. USCCB/MRS believes that, with well-developed resources combined with the trusted relationship these organizations have with refugee communities, FGC could be properly and sensitively addressed with refugee communities to work towards elimination of FGC. Better care could then be given to women who have already gone through the procedure, because health care professionals could be better informed on the issue.
