Following a series of explosions at a munitions dump in Congo’s capital Brazzaville on Sunday 4th March, Handicap International is sending a team to the city to respond to the emergency situation. A decontamination expert will be responsible for securing the danger zone and raising the awareness of the civilian population and teams working in the area about the dangers of unexploded ordnance. The Congolese capital is particularly heavily polluted: munitions and grenades have been projected across a range of several square miles in a densely-populated civilian area.
