International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action 2017

April 4, 2017 in the World

The International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action takes place on April 04, 2017 since it had been established by the United Nations (UN) in 2006. This day shall sensibilize the public to the danger of mines and also the progress in the mine clearing process. Very often children are victims of land mines as they step on mines unknowingly long after the war or armed conflict is over.

A landmine is weapon of explosion concealed under the earth. Usually it is released by the victim himself who would step onto the landmine not seeing it was there. The laying of landmines is cheap and rather easy but the removal is difficult and protracted. But the ground must be cleared in order to cultivate it again. International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action keeps the focus on the urgency of this difficult undertaking.
