Interview with Angola national manager Haller Da Silva

Mr Da Silva, you are working for MgM (People against land mines) in Angola. Since when are you working for MgM?

Haller: I started working for MgM in 1999. In that time, I knew that only a few demining NGOs in Angola were working during the war times.  The German MgM was one of them and I knew they were doing a good humanitarian job, seen that Angolan government themselves had no intention for demining.

Interview with director of operations Ken O‘Connell

I: Mr O’Connell you are the project leader and demining coordinator of MgM in Angola. What kind of a job is that?

Ken: It is of course a very exciting job; every day is challenging and bears a certain occupational hazard, even though, apart from one incident, nothing has ever happened so far. Nonetheless one has to be aware that a small mistake during the demining work can cost one’s own live and that of fellow workers.
