Two years on, Ukraine conflict affects over half a million children – UNICEF

GMAP is committed to helping protect women, girls, boys, and men from the impact of landmines and UXO and believes that in order to prevent accidents and save lives, activities like Mine Risk Education must be sensitive to the gender and diversity of target groups. GMAP applauds UNICEF’s children-targeted MRE programming in the Ukraine that has already reached almost 280,000 children.
