Description : The Afghan Red Crescent Society is working hard at mine-risk education to prevent further civilian casualties.

This village was on the front line between rival armed groups throughout the 1990s. Only recently, a 10-year old boy in the village found an explosve device in his garden. It exploded, and he lost his hand. Children are taught to recognize weapons, not to touch them and to report what they have discovered to local authorities.
