28 Too Many’s powerful new campaign highlights that female genital mutilation (FGM) doesn’t only happen in far away places. Each year three million girls are at risk of FGM in Africa, the Americas, Australia, Asia, the Middle East and many countries in Europe. FGM is abuse and we all need to take action to end FGM everywhere.

Worried about FGM?
FGM is illegal and if you are worried that you or someone else is at risk you can get help from the following:
- The confidential NSPCC FGM Helpline which is available 24 hours a day and you can call anonymously on 0800 028 3550
- Your local police or social services can also offer advice and can help protect anyone at risk and provide support.
There are specialist clinics where you can get help and advice if you have undergone FGM and the Dahlia Project is a support group for FGM survivors.
