Cambodia is the most disabled country in the world. One out of every 236 people has stepped on a landmine.There are 4-6 million landmines still in the ground and everyday a civilian steps on one. Many of the victims are women and children who step on the mine while gathering firewood, farming or tending cows. Half of the victims die, due to lack of medical facilities in Cambodia. The survivors are faced with the difficulty of starting a new life. Most victims are farmers and it is virtually impossible for an amputee to farm.
