Luanda — About 3000 Angolan citizens victims of landmines were recorded by the National Inter-sectorial De-mining and Humanitarian Assistance Commission (CNIDAH) in the provinces of Namibe, Cunene, Huíla, Cabinda and Zaire, as part of the mapping programme carried out by the referred institution.
This was said to Angop in Luanda by the coordinator of CNIDAH sub-commission of Assistance to Landmines Victims, Maria Madalena Neto.
According to her, the mapping programme aims to record all citizens affected by these explosive devices, so as to draft a realistic and comprehensive plan that meets the needs and concerns of the targeting group.
To Maria Madalena Neto, these victims are being integrated in CNIDAH data base, but the measures of the process will include more people of the archives.
The source stressed that at this moment, the registration work nationwide happens in the provinces of Uíge and Malanje.
