MINES ADVISORY GROUP
MAG’s work has helped more than 17.7 million people in conflict-affected communities in over 40 countries since 1989, giving them greater safety and the opportunity to rebuild their lives, livelihoods and futures. MAG help people to be safe from landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO), free from danger, free from fear. By removing unexploded landmines and UXO from land and destroying them, they enable communities to grow more food and make a better living, access better health services, and know that their children can walk to school in safety. After MAG makes land safe, schools are improved and new ones constructed and refurbished, new homes built and agricultural land freed up. Once roads are clear of landmines, trade routes can reopen, while NGOs and other organisations are able to reach remote areas to deliver humanitarian aid and development projects. MAG has removed more than 4.7 million landmines and unexploded items – each one of which could have destroyed lives
We created this film to help raise awareness of the ever-present issue of land mines in war torn countries. Land mines are responsible for 1000’s of deaths every year. We were approached by MAG to create a film to play on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury Festival this year. The manchester based band, Elbow allowed the soundtrack to be used for free to help promote the charity. It is a lovely film with a powerful message, but frankly, we were just pleased to be able to help, even in the smallest way.
