Despite being conflict free for decades, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam remain heavily contaminated with unexploded bombs and landmines. These deadly indiscriminate items continue to pose a daily  threat of death and injury to children, women and men living in conflict affected areas. In addition, these are areas and countries where communities rely on agriculture as their main source of income, and these dangerous remnants of war block safe access to land that could be used for farming, to build schools and housing to access water and for other vital and basic infrastructure.  

Across Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, MAG’s brave teams of men and women, recruited from the local area and trained, work with local communities to identify contaminated areas and identify and remove these explosive items to release safe land back to those who need it the most. Our teams also provide crucial risk education that allows people to live free from danger and fear, and enables communities to rebuild their lives and livelihoods so they can feed their families and earn a living.
