WORST CITY - Luanda, Angola

Luanda, Angola

Population: 4 million

Worst Feature: Poverty, War, Disease

Best Feature: A beautiful coastline, but the beach probably still has Landmines

 
27 years of Civil War has left Luanda, Angola another African Capital City on our “why does anyone live there list.”

While technically the fighting was has been over in Angola for several years since a cease fire was reached in 2002 with a tenuous piece between the warring factions, almost thirty years of unrest have left their toll.

Areas are still without electricity or reliable running water, children play in four to five foot high garbage heaps. Cholera, malaria and other diseases, not to mention HIV/AIDS are rampaging.
 

 

 

Luanda, Angola from the sky.

Kids playing with landmines! When will this insanity end?

Help clear these mines and save children's lives with HALO

The problem
Even though Angola is a huge country with wide open spaces, the vast majority of mines were laid in or around towns and villages that are now growing economically and in population: thus there are concentrations of mines where there are concentrations of people. HALO has conducted extensive survey of the four provinces in which it operates and there are 840 confirmed minefields remaining that require clearance.
Minefields affect people’s lives in different ways: most prevent people from using the land for housing or agriculture. Accidents occur when people inadvertently wander into a danger area or take the risk through expediency. Anti-tank mines on roads deny access to certain areas, restrict the movement of aid organisations and strike unexpectedly causing multiple casualties.

The solution
The mines problem in Angola is large and requires scale to clear all known minefields within a reasonable timeframe. Since 2002, HALO has expanded its programme to over 1,100 Angolan staff with 6 full time expatriates in support. Very considerable progress is being made; even so, HALO estimates that there is still in the region of 10 years’ work to rid Angola of all landmines.
To tackle the threat from AT mines on roads, HALO developed the Road Threat Reduction (RTR) system. RTR is a two part process: first, systematic sweeps are made with a large detector to find metal cased AT mines; this is followed by heavy detonation trailers designed to detonate any minimum metal mine still capable of operating. It is not classed as clearance but provides a significant reduction in threat at a practical speed where there are thousands of kilometres of suspect road.
