After losing their youngest daughter Moy to illness and malnutrition, Christine Ifon and her family moved to an area closer to medical facilities and sustainable farmland, determined that their remaining children, aged seven and four, would have better access to food and medicine. However, when they arrived at their new home, they discovered that it was, in fact, a minefield. Mines Advisory Service (MAG) is now clearing the Ifon families's land so that they can plant crops and start their new life in safety, with the added comfort of knowing basic resources and healthcare are nearby. "We could not go back to where we came from, so to be able to live here safely without the risk from mines, gives our children a better chance in life.ΓΆ€
"As we began to build our hut, The MAG staff came to tell us we had to be careful. They started to clear paths and put-up signs for us so we could move safely".
