The UK supports demining operations in Zimbabwe – through our partners The HALO Trust and Mines Advisory Group MAG- Zimbabwe over 8.5 million square metres of land has been demined and made safe to use. On a recent visit to Ganganyama Village in Rushinga in north east Zimbabwe we were able to see first-hand the huge impact UK support has had. Previously, just 300 metres from the school playground lay one of the densest barrier minefields in the world. Since being declared mine-free in July 2019 the school has installed wifi and is planning to build an extra classroom to accommodate the children, since clearance the children attending on a regular basis has increased from 100 children to over 300. The health centre has expanded – installing solar panels as well as several extra buildings including a covered waiting area for patients.

It's only through the strong partnerships between donors, implementing partners and ZIMAC (Zimbabwe Mine Action Centre) that we have managed to come so far. Congratulations must go to ZIMAC who have been rated “Best in Class” in the global 2022 Mine Action Review - Clearing the Mines 2022 https://www.mineactionreview.org/documents-and-reports/clearing-the-mines-2022
