Force of Life, we give you thanks for those working to remove dangerous landmines in Cambodia and other countries, including APOPO's HeroRATS, African Giant Pouched rats who are trained to detect mines buried in the ground.
Fact: Reports shows that landmine deaths and injuries over the past decades now total in the hundreds of thousands. In Cambodia, a country of almost 15 million people, there are estimates of 10 million landmines. The toll on citizens has been catastrophic: 40,000 live as amputees, one of the highest rates in the world. The good news is that mines are now a problem only in certain parts of Cambodia.
