LANDMINES AND CLUSTER MUNITIONS represent an insidious and persistent danger to children affected by war. Children are particularly vulnerable to these weapons in a number of ways. If they are too young to read or cannot, signs posted to warn them of the presence of mines and remnants of war are useless. Children are far more likely to die from their injuries than are adults. Of those maimed children who survive, few will receive prostheses that keep up with the continued growth of their stunted limbs.
WVCBL/PSALM call on governments and the international community to enact immediate legislation banning the production, use, trade and stockpiling of landmines and cluster bombs.
