Since January 23rd, 2006, DCA's HMA Programme in Angola has been helping to demine a vast area just outside the city of Luena known as Alto Campo.

Located near to the airport, Alto Campo was the sight of heavy fighting during the civil war and much of the village was forced to abandon the land because it was known to contain mines.

The mines of Alto Campo have maimed ten victims in accidents since 2005, and countless more before accurate record-keeping began.
