April 22, 2016

Helping women who have suffered from the horrendous trauma of genital mutilation has become a life mission for Dr. Cornelia Strunz. Anyone who sees her interacting with the women at the support group meetings can see how much love and enthusiasm she brings to her work, helping women find relief from the terrible consequences of Female Genital Mutilation.
On April 21, 2016, Ralf Wieland, President of the House of Representatives of Berlin presented the Louise-Schroeder-Medal to Dr. Strunz and Mrs. Evelyn Brenda as representatives of the whole interdisciplinary team. The medal is awarded to acknowledge  special merit in favour of democracy, peace, social justice and equality of women and men. The event was covered by press and television, creating awareness for the plight of millions of women world-wide.
