The #Unitednations Mine Action Service clears the UN base in the Jebel area of #Juba, South Sudan of unexploded ordnance in the aftermath of days of heavy clashes between the two South Sudanese government forces.
Every year, landmines kill or injure thousands worldwide. Aside from the human toll, the disruption to people's lives is devastating: children prevented from going to school, farmers prevented from working the land, people prevented from making a living.
Mine Action helps to survey, mark and clear dangerous areas, and provides risk education and victim assistance to affected communities.
