Each day, 70 people die as a result of landmines. The vast majority of these victims are innocent civilians, mostly women and children. Millions more are held hostage by these hidden killers, afraid to venture from their homes, unable to plant their fields, or even walk to school or to the clinic. CARE's landmine awareness and de-mining programs seek to disarm these weapons and give people the freedom to move about without fear and the ability to follow their dreams without danger.
