Demining Malanje

MgM were asked to assist in the demining of the Malanje province with EU funding, by removing at least 10% of the hazardous area, with the highest priorities and impact. These were the ones with the perceived greatest threat to the lives of the families who needed to return to their homes.

Now that the perceived threats have been removed from around Kalandula, and Kiwaba Nzoji, life should return to normal. However, there remains concern about the possibility of mines being in, or under, a large bund wall along the western side of the Kiambata 2 and northern side of Kiwaba Nzoji 1 minefields.

Demining Kuando Kubango

After previous funding from the EU ended, the demining task in Kuando Kubango was suspended in 2012. Since then MgM focused on demining in Malanje. Then, during August 2014 MgM received notification that the organisation had been allocated the new contract for the South-east Kuando Kubango Province from the EU. Preparations were immediately made to start demining again!
