The International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action reminds us how far we have come in clearing the world of explosive remnants of war – and how far we still have to go. Thirty years ago, civil society activists came together to launch the International Campaign to Ban Landmines.
JOIN US! FOR “Lend Your Leg” Day. April 4th, encourages people worldwide by a simple but symbolic gesture of rolling up a pant leg to raise awareness about the damage landmines and cluster munitions still cause and show solidarity with all survivors and persons with disabilities.
HERE IS A VIDEO ABOUT HOW LYL GOT STARTED!
ICBL-CMC works for a world free of landmines, cluster munitions, and other explosive remnants of war, where all lives are protected. A world where contaminated land is cleared and returned to local populations for productive use and where the needs of affected communities and survivors are met and their human rights guaranteed.
