UNAF Will Participate in the Commemorative Events Planned Together with the President of the Parliament of Guinea Bissau and Key Players Like UNICEF

The Union of Family Associations (UNAF) traveled to Guinea Bissau to launch the project "Good practices and knowledge transfer in relation to female genital mutilation", in collaboration with the National Committee for the Abandonment of Infamous Practices in this country. June 6 marks the sixth anniversary of the prohibition of this practice by law in the country.
UNAF will participate in planned commemorative events together with the President of the Guinea Bissau Parliament and the main actors such as UNICEF. Although the law has taken a major step forward in recognizing female genital mutilation as a violation of the human rights of women and girls, much remains to be done: 45% of women in Guinea between 15 and 49 are victims of the practice, according to recent UNICEF data.

For this reason, UNAF is developing this collaborative project, which has the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, whose objective is to exchange experiences and strategies to end a practice that violates the rights of 200 million women and girls Worldwide.

A Family Reunion Delayed Four Years

The Hearing annuls the decision of the Board that separated a mother from her kidnapped children
After a trip between Guinea and Algeciras and overcoming legal obstacles, Mariam Berete is closer to meeting her five-year-old son and her unseen four-year-old son. Justice has opened the door to the long-awaited family reunion after the Audiencia de Cádiz has given its reason in its lawsuit against the Andalusian government.

The magistrates have annulled the preadoptive care that the regional government ruled for her son and now technicians will examine Berete, 20, to see if she is a suitable mother for her son.
When Berete's baby was 11 months old, a family member tore the baby from his mother and crossed the Strait of Gibraltar in small boats with him to make sure that the Authorities did not expel her from Spain. It was 2012. Three years later, the young woman crossed the border of Melilla and after reporting her search to the Red Cross, she arrived in Algeciras where she thought her son was living. However, in his absence the council had given the youngest to a foster family and Berete desperately understood in the spring of 2015 that his appearance did not paralyze his foster care, but that his search went into another phase but is still far away to be resolved.
