Our planet is contaminated by a deadly plague of landmines:
War Child has added its name to the growing number of organisations around the world who are calling for a global ban on the manufacture, sale and deployment of landmines. We support The International Campaign to Ban LandminesThe campaign calls for:
An international ban on the use, production, stockpiling, and sale, transfer or export of anti-personnel mines; and
The establishment of an international fund, administered by the United Nations, to promote and finance mine victim assistance programs
Landmine awareness, clearance and eradication programs worldwide; and Countries responsible for the production and dissemination of antipersonnel mines to contribute to the international fund.
