Rotarians donate to project which is trying to help stop FGM

A donation of £1,460 was made by the Rotary Club of Maidenhead towards a project which is trying to help stop female genital mutilation (FGM).

Johanna Raffan from the Thames Valley Soroptimists spoke to Rotarians about FGM at a meeting several weeks ago.

The soroptimists are supporting the Kori Project in Sierra Leone. Its main aims are to empower women through education and independence.

After a special appeal for donations, the Rotary group raised £1,460, which will more than cover the costs of finishing building a library as part of the project.

The cheque was presented to Rose Simbo and Johanna at Maidenhead Golf Club on Monday.
