Video: 'Surviving the Peace: Angola'
"Surviving the Peace: Angola" follows the interconnected stories of an eight-year-old landmine survivor, Minga, and a former soldier turned MAG deminer, Eron.
After more than 27 years of civil war (1975-2002), Angola is one of the most landmine-affected countries in the world.
These deadly weapons don't discriminate between soldiers and civilians, nor between adults and children.
• cause death and injury to people carrying out their everyday activities;
• deny communities access to their farming land and water sources;
• cause food insecurity and poverty;
• deny movement, leaving communities socially and economically isolated;
• prevent refugees and internally displaced people returning home;
• hamper rehabilitation and post-conflict reconstruction;
• leave populations living in fear.
MAG is removing the threat of injury and death in Angola, and helping to alleviate economic devastation.
