Banemanie was thirteen when she was genitally mutilated. She is now 55 and she was one of the first to call Dr. Lankouade, a local surgeon who practices FGM repair, to be operated on. Unfortunately, Clitoraid had to send Bane to have a second surgery in Paris under the care of Dr. Foldes because the surgery conducted by Dr. Lankouade was not successful. Once Clitoraid's hospital opens, African Doctors will be offered free surgical training to insure successful results on their patients too. After her surgery with Dr. Foldes, Bane is now able to feel new sensations in her rebuilt clitoris.
