Eoin Young/MONUC

At a press conference in Kinshasa this Thursday December 14 2006, a renewed appeal was made by 18 NGO's, as well as national authorities and MONUC, for help in finding the remaining US$19 million required for the 2007 programme in the fight against landmines in the DRC.

The appeal was made on the anniversary of the worldwide treaty to ban anti personnel mines, universally known as the Ottawa treaty, which was initially signed by 122 countries in Ottawa, Canada in 1997.
