Bila’ali Ahmed is one of the members of Surveillance group in Yialu Kebele. Bila’ali had a prolonged labor and struggled a lot during birth, “Even though I had prolonged labor due to FGM/C, I still thought I would have to have Halima circumcised because of the tradition in my community. But the group was very helpful and I was convinced that it is a harmful practice.” Chifra Woreda, Afar region.
