Angola: Cnidah Guarantees Reintegration of Landmines Victims

Ondjiva — The officer of the National Inter-sectoral Commission for Demining and Humanitarian Assistance (CNIDAH), Mário Satipamba, last Friday in Ondjiva, southern Cunene Province, encouraged people with physical disabilities caused by accidents with landmines to seek the services of the institution, so that they can benefit from its social reintegration programme.

Speaking to ANGOP, about the registration process of people with disability from landmines accidents in Cunene, said it is necessary that these citizens turn up in the institution's offices.

According to statistics from CNIDAH in Cunene, in 2015 about 546,712 square kilometres of lands were demined, a process that also allowed the collection of nine anti-personnel mines, five anti-tank ones, 34,327 other ordnances and 4,232 ammunitions of diverse calibre.

CNIDAH in Cunene controls three demining operators, namely the Demining Brigade of the Angolan Armed Forces, the local branch of the National Demining Institute (INAD) and the Association of Humanitarian Demining, which belongs to the NGO "Terra-mãe".
