Luanda, 11/06 - The "Lwini" Social Solidarity Fund launches on Wednesday here a collection of texts relating to the problem of victims of landmines in the country, aimed at calling the attention of the society to change their attitude concerning the situation of the disabled.

ANGOP learnt from a press release of that institution that this work results from the collection, during various months, of documents or legislation on the problem of physically disabled people.

The commission working on the elaboration of the collection was made up of experts, members and collaborators of the Lwini Fund, a philanthropic institution led by the Angolan First Lady, Ana Paula dos Santos.

Victims of landmines in Angola are a direct consequence of the war lived in the country for 30 years, but there is no statistics on the exact number of victims.
