Information on the current Covid-19 situation
The Corona Pandemic is also a major challenge for our project countries. Restrictive measures such as curfews, travel limitations, adherence to hygienic measures, home office orders, etc. have been imposed. Mine clearance and risk education activities had to be interrupted almost everywhere. In Cambodia, however, our teams were allowed to continue working without interruption, as the removal of explosive ordnance was classified as systemically relevant.
Although the situation varies from country to country, it seems that after a short interruption almost all of our clearance activities can be resumed with caution. This shows how important mine clearance is for the safety of the population and further development.
It remains difficult for risk education, as larger gatherings and contact with the population are often not yet permitted.
