Angola is one of the most heavily mined countries in the world
Millions of landmines and unexploded bombs are still scattered throughout the country - the legacy of over 40 years of conflict.
MAG has been working in Angola since 1994 and has operations in the east of the country in Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul and Moxico provinces. In the last decade alone, and with the support of the Angolan government, MAG has cleared more than 10 million square metres of minefields for communities—the equivalent of 1,400 football pitches.
It's our mission to find every landmine and unexploded bomb before a child does. But we can only do this with your support.

Landmines still contaminate large swathes of Angola, hindering development and causing injury and death. Over 88,000 people were registered as living with disabilities from landmines and unexploded bombs in 2014.
The contamination in eastern Angola has a significant impact on local communities. People living in the poorest areas of the country are unable to build homes and farm their land safely. Villages cannot expand to accommodate Angolan IDP and refugee communities who had been living in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo and who are still returning home.
