Tearing out the evil at the root would be ideal. In addition, to remove all mines immediately and everywhere would be like a dream. Unfortunately, the reality is different. Those who are unlucky enough to step on a landmine will remain disabled for the rest of their lives. Not only by the mutilation, but also in their existence.
I knew all this before my involvement with mine-ex. But when I was able to experience the poverty and gratitude of the people supported on site, it moved me deeply. Through mine-ex, we want to ensure that people who have been victims of mines or cluster bombs are accompanied throughout their lives. Whether physically with aids or in their integration into work and society. If we don’t do it, no one else will. What then? That is why, as a Rotarian, I am at mine-ex, in the humanitarian service of these people.
