The Secretary-General - Message on the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action
PDF File Size: 70 KB | Download   
The presence of landmines in at least 68 affected countries causes millions of women, men, boys and girls to live in fear of losing their lives, limbs or livelihoods while restricting their freedom to walk safely to work or school, graze livestock and travel to markets. Although nearly 6,000 people fell victim to landmines and explosive remnants of war in 2007, these numbers are dramatically lower than they were only a few years ago. Each year, mine action programs around the world are clearing landmines from more than 100 square kilometers of land and teaching more than 7 million people how to avoid danger in infested areas. These efforts have helped reduce casualty rates. Still,the only acceptable casualty rate is zero.
