Better Health for Rural Women Children and Internally Displaced Persons Foundation in Ebonyi has advocated equal rights and privileges as well as, an end to unnecessary stigmatization of uncircumcised female teenagers in rural communities.
The team leader, Dr Nkechi Echiegu, condemned the stigmatization of uncircumcised girls by their peers and some illiterate parents in the rural communities, which she said has forced some to opt for genital mutilation.
Echiegu cautioned parents to be alive to their responsibilities by protecting and encouraging their children to shun negative family and societal pressures.
She pledged continuous sensitization by the foundation to create awareness due to the many reports of people still mutilating female genitals in the rural communities in the state.
