Safewomanhood Kenya & Safeway Medical Clinic has been providing medical information and services to individuals & families affected and afflicted by FGM among a voiceless minority and refugee communities living in Kenya by engaging and intervening (when possible) againist these heinous practices, providing help and care that could not otherwise (or easily) come to them, and becoming actively involved in building a posterity for better family health.
Fardhosa is a serious activist whose large heart is filled with genuine compassion and in-born empathy. With conviction, she minces no words as she speaks from her beliefs about her goals in life and for Safewomanhood Kenya.
We have been caught by the heart and ears as she narrates some of the untold stories of the plight and suffering of the refugee immigrant communities of Somali people that often brings one to tears. In more ways than one, you are stirred to fight against the injustices faced by the girl-child and their path to womanhood and motherhood.
Over and above that, her experience in the medical field for many years has given her very intricate and intimate success stories & discoveries on community health work. Her commitment is often seen as she advocates for child health, women/girl rights in the streets of Eastleigh, Nairobi and in other places where such needs abound, more so, to the FGM prone communities.
Fardhosa's mention among phenomenal people at http://phenomenalpeople.tumblr.com/post/18954820594/fardhosa-ali-mohammad by Kim is endorsed by others. Indeed, we, who have locally associated with her, do feel as if she has spent all her life mitigating against the terrors of unsafe motherhood especially those wrought by FGM
