Mines Advisory Group
In 1989, two brothers felt compelled to do something to protect people from the crippling and fatal threat of unexploded landmines in war ravaged countries. Their solution was to set up MAG (Mines Advisory Group).
Since then, and thanks to them, countless lives have been saved. 400,000 landmines and cluster munitions, more than 16 million other items including ammunition have been destroyed and over 100,000 risk education sessions have been held for vulnerable communities.
Thanks to MAG, today there is a Mine Ban Treaty to which 160 countries have signed up.
Tomorrow, ten people will lose their lives or suffer serious injury due to unexploded devices. Together let’s protect the men, women & children who still live under such threats, by supporting MAG in their endeavours.
Col Bob Stewart will speak at St Mary’s on 20 July at the 10.30am service about his personal experiences in war-torn Bosnia and the sterling work done by MAG that he witnessed first-hand. All are welcome!
