It does not need to be a dream.
Together, we can make it a reality.
On October 9, 2021, in Warsaw, Poland, Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha received a special award from Super Wiktoria for her humanitarian work and contribution to the global demining action.
Princess Diana’s involvement in the anti-mines cause implied a call for a worldwide ban on mines. In 1999, 122 countries signed the Ottawa Treaty, which prohibits the use, production, stockpiling and transfer of anti-personnel mines. Thirty-three countries, however, have not signed the Mine Ban Treaty.
Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha as humanitarian and anti-landmine activist support an anti-landmine campaign and together with the UN Peacekeepers NGOs will provide necessary measures on collections of funds and providing of medical support for rehabilitation of kids – victims of conflicts on the international level. Princess Angelika continues her international activity under the flag of SPIA Humanitarian Support and Development as cooperation part of SPIA East Europe & Asia and SPIA Humanitarian Development under the umbrella of UN Global Protection Cluster Program for UN Mine Ban Treaty.
Peace Ambassador Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha is a patron of the Cambodia Landmine Museum (founded by Aki Ra Top Hero by CNN), Cambodian Self Help Demining and Landmine Relief Fund. Peace Ambassador Angelika Jarosławska Sapieha appeals to the world to mobilize the international community to support the international antilandmine campaign, demining organizations in Cambodia and raise awareness about the “underground devil”- millions of landmines that are still lying active in the ground around the world. I will appeal that our generation must clean the world from landmines. Mine Free World must become a reality. Her dream and goal is to engage as much civilians, leaders and organizations as possible to mobilize the international community and clean the world from landmines before 2025. She spend months in Asia, especially in Cambodia by her own initiative and funds to be dedicated to that humanitarian action. Angelika met there victims of landmines, dedicated people, who devoted their lives to mine clearing. She met members of royal families, humanitarian and peace leaders and organizations supporting international peace.
There was a time, when there were more landmines than people. She realized, that without strong involvement of international community, we will not achieve mine free world.
To achieve #landminefree2025, we need a strong involvement and support from the international donor community, private sector, and individuals. Thats’s why it’s just a beginning of her anti-landmine campaign to raise international awareness and support mine clearance.
We invite you all to the cooperation for that important mission! We need to remember, that civilian casualties remain extremely high. Landmines affect everyone and 71 percent of casualties being civilians. Landmine does not distinguish between soldier’s foot and children’s foot.
We need to humanize the landmine statistic of survivors and victims. The world is too little aware of the suffering of the landmines victims, killed or maimed by these barbaric weapons, sitting on the ground sometimes from 40 years or more, before they will explode under the child’s feet. These weapons of war kill in peacetime.Cambodia is still one of the most heavily mined countries in the world.
Dozens of civilians are injured or killed every year by them. Millions of the landmines have now been cleared, but there is still a long way to go. We need your involvement! Let more people know about the landmines around the world and get involved!
My dream and goal is to engage as many civilians, leaders and organizations as possible to mobilize the international community and clean the world from landmines.
The world is too little aware of the waste of life, limb and land which antipersonnel landmines are causing among some of the poorest people on earth.
