More Info

My name is Salma, a 20 year old from Somalia in East Africa. I would appreciate if you offered me some help. I am being married off by my guardians to this old man(65) just for them to get dowry. I am also forced to undergo FGM(female genital mutilation) on the same period that i am being married off. This coming January. This has dug a pit in my stomach and I'm in deep sorrow. I will also be forced to quit school coz of this forced marriage.

I have nowhere or anyone to turn to. The goverment doesn't work here coz there is always war and corruption. My life is just going down the drain. I wanna raise money, so I can move away from home and go to some other place and start supporting myself there and start life. There are barely any jobs for women in my home place. Any amount will be of great help and save my life. Any donation will help change and save my life i.
