From 27 to 28 November, Handicap International (HI) is organising a regional conference on the bombing of civilians in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. This conference will bring together some 20 States, 10 African civil society organisations and international NGOs. The goal is to raise awareness of this vital challenge among African countries and to encourage them to take action on the world stage to protect civilians from the devastating impact of the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.

Lyon, le 30 mars 2015. Depuis 2006, le 4 avril est déclaré par les Nations unies « Journée internationale de sensibilisation et lutte contre les mines ». Cette année, Handicap International dresse un constat accablant : les enfants représentent près de la moitié des victimes civiles de mines et restes explosifs de guerre, et la plupart ne retournent plus en classe après leur accident. A cette occasion, Handicap International mobilise les réseaux sociaux avec sa campagne digitale #1photocontre1mine et lance le jeu vidéo « Mine Busters » avec le soutien de Kuela Games.
