Mines Kill. The UN Tries to Stop That

Today is Mine Awareness Day. So, here’s something to help raise your awareness about mines: A Jeremy Renner narrated 8 minute documentary about UN Mine Action Service. You may recall that Renner starred in the fantastic, Academy Award Winning “Hurt Locker.” Well, UN Mine Action Service is like a real-world Hurt Locker, but one with resources considerably more strained that the United States Military. Also, UNMAS does much more than send people in moon suites to defuse mines. It runs education and awareness seminars in communities near minefields and also supports rehab for people who have been injured by landmines and unexploded ordinance. Check it out.
