Can you live with a continuous FEAR?
Do you afraid of dying because of a hidden killer that you can’t see!
Imagine a killer that no one can see… a killer can kill or maim and no law can stop him! This killer is the Landmines and Unexploded Ordnances. Paul Jefferson, one of the earliest humanitarian deminers said: “A landmine is the perfect soldier: Ever courageous, never sleeps, never misses”.
Many people are suffering from landmines, they can’t live, walk or breath safely! Landmines affect a third of the world’s countries. 63 countries are still contaminated by landmines and UXOs. Over 60 million people live at risk from mines and unexploded bombs and accidents rates are going up for the first time in a decade.
For that, the world’s two leading landmine charities, The Halo Trust and Mines Advisory Group (MAG) are leading a Landmine free 2025 campaign with the support of Prince Harry. This campaign works to accomplish the 1997 Ottawa Mine Ban Treaty to clear the world of landmines by a deadline of 2025.
Landmine free 2025 was launched on the international day for mines awareness, April 4, 2017 by Prince Harry in the 20th anniversary of his mother, Diana who visited a minefield with The Halo Trust in Angola 20 years ago to raise awareness of the landmines problem.
Under our motto “Towards a landmine free world”, We, at Minesweepers, are doing our best to encourage youth, researchers and developers from all over the world to work on innovative solutions for this serious problem through building a demining robot and competing with others to raise awareness for the seriousness of landmines problem, changing the world into a landmine free.
Be a part of our journey towards a landmine free world and REGISTER now.
