The drawings you see in this section have been provided by School number 21 located in the Popasna region of eastern Ukraine. Popasna was gravely contaminated by landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERWs) during the armed conflict of 2014.
Ukraine ranks third in the world for mine-related casualties, with children being the most at risk. The contamination severely impacts safety and freedom of movement, especially in eastern Ukraine. Approximately 1.3 million Ukrainians are displaced and cannot return to their homes.
