Landmines and unexploded ordnance affect every aspect of a person’s life. They kill and maim innocent civilians and restrict people's access to education and healthcare facilities, as well as to clean, safe water and land for cultivation. They hinder links between villages, preventing refugees from returning home and restricting local trade. By reducing landmine and UXO contamination, MAG addresses these obstructions to long-term and sustainable development.
Your donation will make 10 square meters of land safe from the danger and devastation caused by landmines and unexploded ordnance. Locating and removing these items is painstaking and hazardous work, but it is an essential step in freeing a community from the poverty and suffering caused by conflict. This careful clearance will save innocent lives and limbs and return safe land to people who desperately need it. A strip of land cleared could allow people to return to their homes, grow food, raise cattle, collect water, walk to school, and begin rebuilding their lives in safety.
