UNICEF Launches Land Mine Awareness Campaign in Sri Lanka

  • VOA News

The United Nations Children's Fund - UNICEF - has launched a campaign in Sri Lanka to increase land mine awareness before the coming main farming season.

UNICEF says it will advertise heavily to educate farmers in Sri Lanka's north and east, where tens of thousands of land mines were laid during the nation's 20 years of civil war.

July, August and September are the most dangerous months in Sri Lanka for land mine injuries, because farmers return to their fields to harvest crops and plant new ones.

Tens of thousands of displaced people in Sri Lanka's northeast are unable to return home and cultivate their lands because of the land mines.
