Clearing landmines is the essential first step in rebuilding lives after conflict. The fighting may be over but as long as landmines and explosives are in the ground, people in war-torn countries continue to live in fear. They can’t return home, let alone plant crops, fetch water or let their children walk to school.
We take such day-to-day activities for granted, but for the innocent victims of conflict, safe steps are too often a dream.
TPU works with local communities to make land safe so that confidence can be restored and life can begin again.
