Next week, Mozambique, formerly one of the world’s most heavily mined countries, will formally declare it has completed mine clearance on its territory, the 29th country to do so since the 1990s. This leaves 60 countries and territories still contaminated according to Clearing the Mines, a review of mine action programmes around the world published today by Norwegian People’s Aid. The report’s authors have calculated that by 2020 another 20 countries should have completed mine clearance and the urgent humanitarian threat removed from the other 40.

Imagine you are an elderly woman, the only one who can work in your family, with hungry mouths to feed but your mobility is limited and you cannot go far from home for work. Imagine you are an old woman with a prosthetic leg with no male to earn any income in your household, and a young and troubled son to look after. Imagine you’re a young woman whose husband is in jail in Syria, whose infant son passed away, and who has a young daughter depending on you to clothe, shelter, and feed her.
