Alimatu is a powerhouse of an advocate for women, particularly those at risk or having suffered gender based violence such as female genital mutilation. Asa survivor, she uses her personal experience to inform others in the most powerful way and yet with humour and empathy. She personally supports survivors and has been a crucial member of our hospital steering group. I have worked with her for 7 years & she does it all entirely voluntarily & count her a friend.
