#Child-Not Bride Campaign + "DRY" (An Upcoming Stephanie Okereke Movie)

Northern Nigeria has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world: nearly half of all girls here are married by the age of 15. The consequences have been devastating. Nigeria has the highest maternal mortality rate in Africa and one of the world’s highest rates of fistula, a condition that can occur when the pressure of childbirth tears a hole between the vagina and the bladder or rectum. Many women are left incontinent for life. Up to 800,000 women suffer from fistula in Nigeria. And as if that was not enough, you have all recently heard, that a bunch of SICK PEDOPHILES who happen to be senators in the Nigerian government have all signed for child marriage to be legal in Nigeria -
.
Basically what they did is approved language that would remove the protection for young women and girls from repeatedly being rape in the guise of early marriage, so in retrospect a 13 yr old can be married off. See below for the list of all the pedophiles who signed this. 
.
It just so happens that our beautiful gorgeous Actress Stephanie Okereke had already completed a movie titled "DRY" which covers this issue of Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ), a cause the soft spoken actress is very passionate about. VVF is like female circumcision and you can read another thread i posted here last year - Grassroot movement to end female circumcision. There are so many youtube videos you can watch on this topic just to be aware of what is going thats hardly ever spoken of.
.
Our actress Stephanie says; “I have been to the North and to other parts of the country, and I have seen first-hand how this health issue defies normal living for girls and women of different ages. I have decided to share their stories through “DRY”. 
.
The movie “DRY” journeys into the heart-wrenching details of a culture not too many films dare to explore. The issue might seem controversial, but if it will set one girl free and open the minds of the people, and also instruct different bodies and individuals to take action, then the movie would have served its purpose. Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ) causes leakage of urine and faeces through the vagina. Girls as young as 11-15 years suffer this ailment when they are forced into early marriages to older men, and due to their small pelvic sizes, unable to carry a baby full term, they experience obstructive labour which can lead to a tear in the wall that which connects the vagina to the rectum thus causing the victim to constantly leak urine and sometimes feaces.
.
Stephanie was not going to release this movie yet at all, but with the recent announcement from the senate, and this topic being so related, she felt compelled to release this movie sooner. These atrocities still happening in parts of Africa and are all interrelated . 
.
The release of this movie will help increase the awareness globally about Vesico Vaginal Fistula (V.V.F ) as well as about underage marriages in many parts of africa - We are killing our own kids. We as adults need to protect our kids any way we can. It doesnt matter what tribe, religion, nationality. I am extremely utterly passionate about kids and hearing such stories, causes me sleepless nights. 
.
And on the topic of child marriage law passed in nigeria senate, these mofos as leaders of the nation are suppose to protect our children, not to stick your shrivel up d1cks in these lil girls. A child is suppose to be a child, to play, to learn, to just enjoy life without any worries. We as adults should do the worrying for them. This is the sickest law i have ever heard in my whole entire life.

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I am deeply saddened by this.
