For families living in daily fear of landmines and unexploded bombs, risk education is a matter of life and death.
Every day, 15 people are killed or injured by landmines and unexploded bombs. These indiscriminate weapons devastate lives in more than a quarter of all countries in the world. And over half of all civilian casualties are children.
Risk education sessions provide affected communities with potentially lifesaving information on how to recognize, avoid and report threats—information that is especially vital for children and returning communities.
Over recent years, and accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been trialing innovative ways to reach communities online when in-person activities aren't an option. Using digital channels means lifesaving messages can still be shared, and as many people as possible can access information to keep them and their families safe.
When people live surrounded by explosive ordnance, they’re surrounded by immense danger. But we know that we can save lives by providing people with accessible information.
Please support us to help MAG develop and deliver lifesaving lessons across the world today.
