Some good news today out of Cambodia: Landmine accident deaths and injuries are dropping. In 2013, 23 people lost their lives to landmines versus 45 in 2012. Injuries to landmines were also down from 186 in 2012 to 111 last year. Officials attribute the drop to aggressive demining efforts taking place across the country.

In a one-year period, Clear Path International assisted more than 9,400 landmine accident survivors, persons with disabilities and members of their families in five countries, according to the organization's 2007 - 2008 annual report.

The number of 2007 - 2008 beneficiaries is more than CPI served in its entire history since 2000. It stems largely from its new Afghanistan operation and from a record number of bomb survivors assisted in Vietnam during the period. CPI's other program activities are in Cambodia, Thailand and just inside Burma.

KABUL, Afghanistan - Clear Path International (CPI), a U.S.-based humanitarian mine action nonprofit organization, has received a multi-year contract from DynCorp International to start a landmine survivor assistance program in Afghanistan on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.

With an average of 90 casualties from landmine and explosive remnants of war per month, Afghanistan is one of the world's most "mine-affected" countries. Nearly half of all casualties die trying to reach a hospital. One in every 10 adult men is a victim of a landmine or explosive remnant of war.
