Deminers in Cambodia
The number of landmines placed in the land of Cambodia is considered to be 4 to 6 million. As many as 800 people fall victim to them every year.
While military veterans or specialists have been at the forefront of removing landmines in other regions of the world, it is the local residents that have played major roles in demining in Cambodia. There is even an all-female demining team. They are brave enough to risk their lives on removing dangerous landmines.
