This International Mine Awareness Day, EMERGENCY reaffirms its commitment to treating the victims of these inhumane and indiscriminate weapons.
EMERGENCY staff report from the field where Iraq's landmine problem continues to affect innocent civilians, many of whom are children.
"That's what I've learnt about bullets, shrapnel and landmines. And it's something you won't find in the books."
EMERGENCY's three hospitals in Afghanistan have admitted more than 14,000 injured by bullet, more than 7000 injured by explosion and more than 4000 injured by landmines
