From the 1960s to the 1990s, Cambodia was in an almost constant state of war. Saturation bombing, civil war, and genocide scarred its landscapes and its people.
Five million landmines and explosive remnants of war remain hidden in Cambodia.
Long forgotten landmines, grenades, rockets, artillery shells and cluster bombs kill and injure people and deny farmers and families thousands of hectares of land.
Since 1979, more than 65,000 Cambodians have been struck by an explosive remnant of war.
