Global Mine Problem
Mine production is still a very profitable business where massive sums of money can be earned. Many states worldwide, including Germany, are still producing mines.
Since 1996 we are clearing land mines in especially dangerous areas of the world and help the threatened people to return to a normal life.
Presently MgM is clearing land mines in Kuando Kubango to guarantee a land mine free area for the development of the biggest national park of the world.
MgM - People against Landmines
Since 1996 the humanitarian organization People against Landmines (Menschen gegen Minen) is working on deming projects and projects of infrastructural rehablitationin in dangerous post-war scenarios in the Southern Africa

18 years of MgM work
For 18 years we have tirelessly been operational in southern Africa conducting humanitarian demining work, to grant people living in conflict areas a safer life and a human future. We are proud of our and we still have a lot of intentions.
Malanje mine clerance report and funding requirements
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
Help building a future for Kuando Kubango province
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!
Report: 25 years of Civil War in Angola
25 years of civil war leave behind a shattered nation
Until today, nearly 10 years after the end of the war, Angola is still suffering the consequences of the dreadful civil war. Many traumatised people, including former child warriors and rape victims have to find a way into modern life. It is estimated that some hundred thousand people have to life with mutilations from landmines – nobody knows the exact number.
