Needs

The risks of people sustaining injuries and dying as a result of Landmines and accidents from other explosive remnants

of war (ERWs) still remains a major threat for boys, girls and women in South Sudan. South Sudan is one of the

countries globally affected by Landmines and explosive Remnants of War (ERWs), with its level of infections affecting all

of the 10 States of South Sudan.

According to United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), IMSMA report of December 2012, there were 3,258

accidents where 3,359 specified people who sustained injuries and 1,282 people killed from Landmines and Explosive

Remnants (ERWs), a significant number of children are reported to have been affected. There has also been recent

incident of Mine accident reported in Warrap which involved children, yet some of these areas are not traditionally

contaminated, it could be that the landmines which were buried in the ground were exposed following the heavy rains, it

is also assumed that some of the mines and ERW could have come to these new areas as a result of the flooding

experienced in certain parts of Warrap. Communities living such areas have never had to worry about landmines and

Page 1 of 3suddenly they are faced with new dangers and risks and which they are not prepared for in anyway.

During the 1st quarter of 2011, there were reports of 12 incidences of fresh laying of Landmines in Unity, Upper Nile

(Malakal town) and Jonglei
