MINURSO Celebrate International Mine Awareness Day

Western Sahara (MINURSO)

On 3 April 2014, MINURSO commemorated the International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action. This was an opportunity to reflect on mine action achievements in Western Sahara, and to honor those who have been injured and killed by landmines and ERW. 
Here are a few photos from ceremony at MINURSO HQ and from the field. Many thanks to the MACC Ops/QA Officer, Information Management Officer and Military Liaison Officer for organizing this event!
