The Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) estimates that there may be as many as four to six million mines and unexploded ordnances in Cambodia.
Dung Tang Village in northern Cambodia has over 150 kids looking for a school. But there was a mine field in the way.
The villagers built their own school last year, but it was made from sticks and grass, and surrounded by landmines. The recent rains just about washed the school away and their playground had been a minefield.
Aki Ra and the Landmine Relief Fund have promised to build them a new village school. It’s going to be 30 meters long and about 7 meters wide. It will have a tin roof and desks and benches for all the kids. The job will cost $3,000, but will allow 150 kids to go to school and have a better future.
