Mozambique: A legacy of war

Since 1993, the United Nations and various non-governmental organizations, including the HALO Trust, Handicap International, Anti-Personnel Landmines Detection Product Development and Norwegian People's Aid, have been steadily demining Mozambique in collaboration with the National Institute of Demining. Mozambique hopes to complete demining operations in 2015 – a significant achievement in this once heavily mine-affected country. However, the needs of mine victims will remain. Government estimates put the number of casualties at 10,900.
