The EOD Teams back at work!
These photos and explanations will keep you up on how to answer the question: “Oh, are there still landmines in Cambodia?”
The answer is a resounding “YES!!!!”.
Join our EOD teams as they uncover, remove and destroy all sorts of harmful explosives on a DAILY basis!
These are quotes from the Myanmar Times of Wednesday, April 4, 2018, in their article titled “EU calls for decisive actions on landmines in Myanmar”. The EU said these words within a statement on the occasion of International Mine Awareness Day.
The 28-country EU noted, “…landmines are harming and killing people in many conflict-affected areas around the world, even long after a conflict ends.”
“Most of the time, landmines primarily affect the most vulnerable: children, civilians fleeing ongoing conflict or farmers in rural areas who have no choice but to enter mine-contaminated areas in order to pursue livelihoods and feed their families,” it said.
“Mines and explosive remnants of war are not only a serious threat to the safety, health and lives of civilians, but also a cause of increased poverty levels and a significant impediment to socio-economic development in the affected areas,” it added.
I think I can speak for all of us at CSHD that THIS is why we are working here!
