    How Nasar Bounced Back and Got Back to Being a Kid

    That one day Nasar walked outside to ride his bike changed his life forever. After losing his leg to a landmine explosion in his own village, HI’s rehabilitation experts helped Nasar regain strength in his body and mind. Now, he can enjoy life, participate in school, and be a kid again.

    How Beltran Honors the Loved Ones He Lost to a Landmine

    Beltran is raising his voice so landmine accidents don’t ravage other innocent families.

    A seemingly normal car ride scarred Beltran forever, both physically and emotionally. He lost his father, uncle, and godfather that day when they pulled over to answer a phone call and the cell phone’s frequency triggered a landmine explosion. HI has stood by Beltran’s side through multiple operations and helped him gain the strength to live independently.

    Long story short.

    The damage done to the body by these weapons is not only caused by the explosion itself, but also by the earth, bacteria, pieces of clothing and fragments of metal and plastic that find their way into the body tissue. HI steps in to help victims who survive these explosions to recover their physical strength and peace of mind.

    Casualty (n.) a person killed or injured in a war or accident.

    Humanity & Inclusion serves thousands of wonderful, innocent people who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    For 38 years, Humanity & Inclusion (HI) has been a strong global advocate for the landmine ban and active cleanup of landmines and other explosive weapons that harm too many innocent people every day. HI pushes hard against world leaders who use weapons that deliver deadly and disabling blows to civilians. In 1997, HI received a Nobel Peace Prize for our advocacy work passing the Mine Ban Treaty.

    HI has teams all over the world who step in to help victims with disabilities recover their peace of mind and physical strength. Our staff are often by people’s sides as they take their first steps on new, artificial legs, or as they are integrated back into their communities.

    HI walks a rigid line of independence and impartiality to ensure we can deliver aid in some of the world’s most dire conflicts and emergencies. We raise the voices of people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions, and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

    Without our donors, all of these people would get left behind.

    Demand the U.S. to stop using landmines

    Target: U.S. President, Donald Trump

    Humanity & Inclusion needs your help. On January 31, President Donald Trump reversed an Obama Administration policy, and decided to allow the U.S. military to again use landmines in conflicts around the world. 

    More than 70% of landmine victims are civilians. In 2018, landmines killed 3,059 and injured 3,837 people. 54% of civilian casualties were CHILDREN. With landmines impacting communities in more than 60 countries and territories, the danger is very real.

    164 countries have signed on to the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, which prohibits the use, stockpiling, production, and transfer of anti-personnel landmines. In 1997, the U.S. participated in the Ottawa process to ban landmines, but never adopted or signed it.

  • published Cluster Bombs in Explosive Weapons 2020-02-03 12:40:40 -0500

    Cluster Bombs

    Cluster bombs can be dropped from aircraft or fired from the ground. They are designed to break open in mid-air, releasing the sub-munitions and scattering them over an area that can be as large as several football fields.

    Indiscriminate

    When sub-munitions explode, they fire hundreds of fragments of metal that travel at the speed of a bullet. Anybody within the area, military or civilian, is very likely to be killed or seriously injured. Unlike landmines, which are designed to maim rather than kill, cluster bombs are much more likely to kill and to cause multiple casualties. Even if a victim lives, they will suffer various injuries such as loss of limbs, burns, ruptured eardrums, blindness and internal complications.

    An inaccurate weapon that doesn't always explode on impact

    Many sub-munitions fail to explode on impact, and huge quantities are left on the ground, leaving a fatal threat to civilians decades after conflict ends.

    In many countries, accidents occur when ordinary people try to move unexploded sub-munitions out of economic necessity, curiosity or social responsibility. Civilians might attempt to clear land for farming or to prevent children from playing with bomblets.

    In Afghanistan, for example, shepherds, farmers and children collecting firewood are common victims. In many poor communities, people are often injured trying to salvage bomb containers in order to sell the scrap metal.

    A life-saving convention banning cluster munitions

    These weapons are illegal under the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which became international law on August 1, 2010. Work remains to encourage every nation to join the Convention and to ensure that States Parties fulfill their obligations.

    The U.S. has yet to join the Convention on Cluster Munitions. To join the Campaign to ban this weapon, please visit the U.S. Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munitions.
