Wars come and go, but the aftermath leaves people living in danger and fear for years


Every day 15 people are killed or injured by landmines and unexploded bombs, all too often it's a child. Our teams across the world need your support to continue their urgent and life-saving work.

A gift of £40 today could fund a fully trained deminer for one day. Making sure our teams get to every landmine before a child does. 

We believe that together, we can achieve a landmine-free future, and greater safety and security for people affected by conflict.

Sidra's Story

Sidra is one of the countless children in Iraq who have been affected by conflict. Huge numbers of landmines are hidden in the fields around her village. Her family risk setting off a deadly explosion whenever they farm the land.

Sidra attends school in the city during the week, but at the weekends she is at home helping tend to her family’s livestock – surrounded by minefields. To make a dangerous situation even more terrifying, the area is on a slope, so landmines can shift and fall at any time.

MAG teams have successfully cleared more than two acres of land in Sidra’s village, but there is still much more to be done with two fields still contaminated.
