Internationally renowned artist Nicole Moudaber, has launched her charity ELEVEN, with the aim of raising awareness and money to prevent FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). During this campaign, Nicole will be inviting people around the world to stand up for the rights of girls who have undergone, and suffered the outcomes of the practice and for those who are at risk and trying to prevent it from happening further. All the money raised by ELEVEN will go to Magool, which has been created by psychotherapist and human rights activist Leyla Hussein to support survivors of FGM and those working to end it.
Every 11 seconds a girl is affected by FGM, with over 200 million women globally and approximately 3.6 million more girls at risk every year, the harmful process is carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15. The FGM procedure involves partial or total removal of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons, with the extreme side effects including cysts, infections, infertility, and even death.

Nicole Moudaber will play at Glasgow’s Sub Club for DJ Mag Sessions on 25th October. She also recently remixed two Moby tracks for a new EP which is out now.
