ONE MINE ONE LIFE WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT FOR MINE-FREE WORLD￼
On March 21, 2022 in New York City will take place an NGO CSW Parallel Event. The NGO CSW Forum runs parallel to the official session taking place at the UN Headquarters.
The aim of the event is to draw attention to the problem of land mines that cause injuries and deaths of people all over the world every day. The number of children who fell victim to landmines in the past year has increased significantly (children account for 54 percent of all civilian casualties). Anti-personnel mines have violated one of the most important, inalienable human rights – to live and develop, and function without constant fear.
There are newly planted landmines along humanitarian corridors that were supposed to be designed for the safe evacuation of civilians, children. Russian troops used in urban areas cluster munition missiles and air bombs with mines, which are prohibited by international law.
The Parallel Event will be led by Princess Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha, an International Peace Ambassador, philanthropist, business woman. The Princess is the initiator of the ’One Mine, One Life’ movement and campaign for a mine- free world.
The panel will be represented by panelists from 7 countries – the United States, France, Ukraine, Great Britain, Cambodia, Iran and Poland:
