Cambodia is still one of the most heavily mined countries in the world.Dozens of civilians are injured or killed every year by them. Millions of the landmines have now been cleared, but there is still a long way to go; it is estimated Cambodia will not be entirely cleared of landmines for several decades to come…In Cambodia, the mines were spread throughout the country over several decades, the result of constant warring between the Khmer Rouge and its opposing factions. According to the information from Halo Trust: landmines laid during the ousting of the Khmer Rouge in 1979 and throughout the 80s and 90s have had a devastating impact on the people of Cambodia. Over 64,000 casualties and more than 25,000 amputees have been recorded since 1979.At the picture: Peace Ambassador Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha with Bill Morse, Founder and President of the Landmine Relief Fund.The Landmine Relief Fund (LMRF) is a U.S. based 501c3 charity that supports the work of Cambodian NGOs. It was established by Bill Morse in 2003 to support the mine-clearing work of Cambodian Self-Help Demining (CSHD), a Cambodian NGO founded by an ex-child soldier and CNN hero Aki Ra.More information soon.Please, visit and support:http://www.cambodialandminemuseum.org/http://www.landmine-relief-fund.com/http://www.cambodianselfhelpdemining.org
