A UFO cult, The Raelians, is behind Africa’s first clitoral restoration hospital in Burkina Faso, set to open in March, which will offer a controversial surgery to victims of female genital mutilation.
The Raelian sect believes that humans were created by extra-terrestrials to experience joy. It promotes world peace, democracy – and sexual satisfaction.
This mission has led them to actively campaign against female genital mutilation(FGM), and to back a clinic in San Francisco, offering a controversial reconstructive surgery for victims.
Its surgeons claim they can restore sexual feeling and orgasms to victims, although the results remain contested by some doctors.
Now the movement is bringing their work to Burkina Faso, with a new centre in the southern town of Bobo-Dioulasso due to open on 7 March2014.
The centre is called the Kamkazo, or “the house for women”, but is nicknamed “the Pleasure Hospital”.
