This film offers a comprehensive overview of the various steps taken to implement a mine awareness programme and is an excellent resource to promote the importance of mine awareness work in saving lives. It highlights those components that are essential to the success of each programme - collecting information, community involvement and the importance of integration with the work of other humanitarian organizations - in order that a programme can be tailored for the specific needs of an individual community.
