“Each year thousands of people are harmed by explosive violence – landmines, improvised explosive Devices (IEDs), unexploded remnants of war, airstrikes and ordnance.

Many of these victims will never benefit from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals unless we are able to tackle the menace of explosive violence and also provide much needed long-term support to impacted communities.”

The Rt Hon Lord Dear QPM DL

As one of the ‘five pillars’ of mine action, the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) defines victim assistance as follows:

Assistance is provided through a number of concrete actions to meet the immediate and long-term needs of mine accident survivors, their families, mine-affected communities and persons with disabilities. Assistance includes, but is not limited to, emergency and continuing medical care; physical rehabilitation; psychosocial support and social inclusion; and laws and public policies that promote effective treatment, care and protection for all disabled citizens.

The injuries are different from any other and require long-term support which is currently not being provided. We need governments to recognise this and fund appropriate response projects.

The REVIVE campaign was born out of the need to promote the work of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Explosive Threats, and its inquiry into victim assistance. The campaign has sparked the imagination of many in the mine action and victim assistance communities, and has raised a great deal of attention at the highest levels of government – evidenced by a letter from former Prime Minister, Theresa May.
