Landmine Victim

Cambodia has one of the worst landmine problems in the world.

Cambodia has experienced close to three decades of perpetual war and violence which has led to a large proliferation of land mines and UXO (unexploded ordnance) throughout the countryside. Often areas that could be used for agriculture, commercial, civil and other uses are not accessible due to the dangers of landmines.

In 2002, 98 percent of the mine casualties in Cambodia were civilian.
