Danish Group Helps Clear Somalia of Mines


MC: A DANISH NGO HAS BEEN WORKING IN SOMALIA TO HELP BRING STABILITY AND SAFETY TO COMMUNITIES LIVING IN FEAR OF LANDMINES. THE DANISH DEMINING GROUP, DDG, SAYS IT’S BEEN WORKING THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY TO CLEAR DEADLY MINES. EVEN MORE -- IT’S ALSO BEEN EDUCATING COMMUNITIES AT A GRASSROOTS LEVEL ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN DO TO CREATE A SAFER ENVIRONMENT. KLAUS LJOERRINNG PEDERSEN IS THE DDG REGIONAL DIRECTOR FOR THE HORN OF AFRICA. HE SAYS THERE ARE PROGRAMS ACROSS SOMALIA, INCLUDING CENTRAL AND SOUTH CENTRAL SOMALIA, AND IN NORTHERN SOMALIA, INCLUDING THE PUNTLAND REGION. HE TALKED WITH ME FROM NAIROBI ABOUT SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THEY ARE FACING IN DEMINING EFFORTS IN SOMALIA.
