Falmata Bulamo, a women's representative at an IDP camp in Bama. She is one of the Mines Advisory Service's (MAG) trained focal points for landmine and explosive ordnance reports in the camp and is very supportive of the work MAG has been doing: ''It is important work, people often find dangerous explosives and it's thanks to MAG that they know what is dangerous. Just two weeks ago, a woman reported to me that she has found something on a wire near a school three kilometres up the road. I went and looked, from a distance, and saw a milk tin with a wire. I told the military and they dealt with it. An old woman was out fetching firewood. She found a hollow log with a big bomb inside it. She reported it to the military on the gate and they blew it up. She recognised it because of MAG. The work is good and it saves lives.''
