EVENTS

 4 April 2017: Landmine Free 2025


SPOKESPEOPLE

MAG works in current and former conflict zones, to reduce the threat of death and injury from remnants of conflict. These include anti-personnel and anti-vehicle landmines, as well as rockets, missiles, mortars, grenades, ammunition, small arms and light weapons, and many more types of deadly items.

So we don’t just carry out plain landmine or bomb clearance – some of our projects aren’t even about landmines. We can provide spokespeople on a wide range of topics.

To arrange an interview please contact MAG here or phone +44 (0)161 236 4311.


PHOTOGRAPHS

Award-winning photographer Sean Sutton has been working with MAG for more than 15 years and had amassed an archive of awe-inspiring images of communities affected by conflict. We can make these photographs available to media outlets on request.

Please consult the Photos section of this website and send us your request.
