Prince Harry calls for a redoubling of efforts to achieve a Landmine Free 2025

“Let us not meet again in another ten years and hear that a new generation of children face being maimed or killed through innocent play.”

Prince Harry has recorded a special message to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Mine Ban Treaty, calling for a renewed commitment to the campaign for a Landmine Free 2025. Evoking the efforts of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, that led to the signing of the Mine Ban Treaty in 1997, Prince Harry said: "It falls to me and all of us to uphold her promise.”

Every day twenty-four people are injured or killed by a landmine and over 40% of these casualties are children. Prince Harry is calling on all of us to unite to clear the world of landmines by 2025 so that "future generations of children can play without fear.”
