MineTech Recognises April 4 2015 – International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action

This year’s theme, ‘More Than Mines’, highlights the growing rate of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attacks, and the millions of innocent victims directly and indirectly effected by the aftermath of conflict.

MineTech has spent the last 26 years removing Landmines and Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) throughout 49 countries. We have supported humanitarian projects and economic development in regions of ongoing conflict and post conflict.

Our work reaches far beyond the removal of landmines and we would like to use this opportunity to reflect on a snap shot of the achievements we have made and the people we have supported over recent years.

 Capacity Building

To benefit the community in which we are removing landmines in South Sudan, MineTech built, and in 2015 donated, a public community research building to Rajaf Payam. The community looks forward to using this space to carry out a range of activities some of which will be centered around Mine Risk Education.
