The late Diana, Princess of Wales, was famously photographed twenty years ago walking in a minefield in Angola. The image brought an added level of international attention to the landmine crisis, and there has since been a remarkable effort to clear lands and eliminate danger from the area Diana walk as well as many others around the world.


[Diana’s walk] was a key moment for landmine clearance generally, because it brought the world’s attention to this humanitarian catastrophe that was happening in so many countries around the world … The minefield that Diana visited in Angola is now a thriving suburb with houses and a college. There is absolutely no trace now that there was ever a minefield there.

  • Andrew Moore, Director of Development of the HALO Trust
