Atenção Chihango is in his 70s, though he is not sure of his exact age. Despite his name, which in Portuguese means 'attention' or 'careful', Atenção had the misfortune of stepping on a landmine when he was a soldier in the Angolan Armed Forces during the civil war. He lost his left leg.
He sits in an open area with his wife and several elderly neighbours, among a cluster of mud brick huts that form the small rural community of Caleji, where he was born and where he has lived most of his life.
The removal of landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) in Moxico Province is helping the construction of houses and roads, and giving safe access to water and agricultural land.
