Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our supporters, MAG has been able to directly help more than one million women, men, girls and boys over the last 12 months. As the outgoing and incoming Chief Executives, we are proud that MAG has made 47 million square metres of land safe – an area equivalent to more than 6,500 professional football pitches.

Helen's story

Helen – Moxico province, Angola

“Every day I woke up thinking and worrying that maybe today is the day that someone stands on a landmine and dies. Six people stood on mines here and they all died. We were imprisioned by mines. I have 10 children and so many grandchildren, and they are all alive because of MAG. I praise MAG and the people who support MAG for clearing the death from this area.”

“We are home and we are safe.”

The James family live on a former minefield. Before MAG cleared the landmines in their village, there was nowhere for them to safely rebuild their lives and livelihoods.



Now Sophat’s land is safe, his family’s income will grow from $800 to $20,000 a year.

Landmines stopped Sophat from using his land to its full potential. Married with four children, he struggled to feed his family and cover the costs of daily life.



“MAG has brought life back to our village.”

Children can now learn and play at their primary school after MAG removed and destroyed lethal unexploded bombs.

Total expenditure: £37,582,000

(Overseas programmes includes £568,000 unrestricted sources and MAG investment)
