After more than 27 years of civil war (1975-2002), Angola is one of the most landmine-affected countries in the world.

These deadly weapons don't discriminate between soldiers and civilians, nor between adults and children.

They:

• cause death and injury to people carrying out their everyday activities;

• deny communities access to their farming land and water sources;

• cause food insecurity and poverty;

• deny movement, leaving communities socially and economically isolated;

• prevent refugees and internally displaced people returning home;

• hamper rehabilitation and post-conflict reconstruction;

• leave populations living in fear.

MAG is removing the threat of injury and death in Angola, and helping to alleviate economic devastation.


MAG relies on donations to clear the remnants of war, such as landmines. Please donate online now. Your generosity makes a remarkable difference to the lives of families affected by conflict.
