ANGOLA: US Ambassador Supports MAG in Angola, Empowering More Refugees to Return Home
At the end of April, US Ambassador to Angola, Dan Mozena, his wife, and five colleagues from the Embassy, visited 4 De Fevereiro, where land is currently being cleared for the benefit of returning refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs).
The Ambassador and his delegation had the opportunity to observe MAG's deminers in operation. After witnessing MAG's team clear a mine-contaminated area and demolish dangerous remnants of war, they were inspired by the work that MAG is doing to prepare the land for returnees.
"As the representative of the United States in Angola, I was proud that American taxpayers were helping make possible the fine work that MAG is doing to make Angola, once one of the most heavily mined countries in the world, free from landmines."In addition to visiting MAG's operations, the Ambassador met with representatives of the local community, Chief Rogério António Suco, and a representative of the national mine action authority, CNIDAH, Chile Manuel Chicanha.
