Survivor Stories
Tun Channereth - Cambodia

Tun Channereth lost both his legs in a landmine explosion in 1982 near the Thai-Cambodian border. He barely survived the blast as his friend had to carry him 30 kilometers to the nearest medical post. He has traveled the world pleading with government leaders to end the production and use of landmines. He fears that his six children will have no future if landmines continue to make Cambodia "the land of the killing fields," where it is said there are about 10 million live mines.
