Pierre Foldes

Women Safe Institut
Val d’Isère 2019

Pierre Foldes, a urological surgeon, has been fighting against female circumcision for the past 30 years, together with other renowned doctors such as Dr. Denis Mukwege, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize winner. A pioneer in the field, he has helped to find a way to reverse this heavily damaging criminal practice, by inventing a method to repair the damages caused to the clitoris of circumcised women. He also cofounded with Frédérique Mertz the Women Safe institute that takes care of women who are victims of violence. Over the past 25 years, Pierre Foldes has operated on and helped more than 6,000 women from both France and abroad.
