Report
Finn Church Aid

After at least 12 years in refuge more than 5,000 people will now be resettled in Moxico Province in Angola on land cleared of landmines by DanChurchAid (DCA). FCA has been funding this project for three years.

They fled Moxico Province during the 27 year long civil war that finally ended in 2002, and are now returning from Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo and other parts of Angola. They have not been able to return to their home locations before because of the threat of landmines and unexploded ordnance.
