ICVolunteers Projects in Afghanistan:
Landmines conference: 7th Meeting of the States Parties (7MSP)
While the situation has improved in recent years, antipersonnel landmines are still being laid today, mutilating and killing people together with mines from previous conflicts.
Landmine Survivors Network Meeting on Strategy
Le Réseau des Survivants aux Mines Antipersonnel (LSN), créé par et pour les survivants, permet aux individus, aux familles et aux communautés touchés par les mines de surmonter le traumatisme, de faire valoir leurs droits et respecter leur dignité.
Training for Landmine Survivors
For several years the personal stories presented by landmine survivors have had a significant impact in reminding experts, diplomats and decision-makers of the human faces behind issues being discussed.
