Description : Aye Aye Win says she prays for two things, her daughters’ education and for others to be safe. “I do not fear for myself. But sometimes I get worried about whether I will be able to support my children’s education. I’m not going to give up… I will keep supporting them till they are well educated. Other than that, I get worried about other civilians being injured. I really don’t want anyone else to go through what I did. That’s what I pray for,” she says.

Adding to the humanitarian crisis, many people are injured by landmines and unexploded ordnance as they go about their daily routine of collecting vegetables from the forest or herding cows.
