Survivor Stories
Fahrija and Mirsada Dulic - Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sisters Fahrija and Mirsada used to walk each day across a field to work at a shoe factory near their home in Korica Han, Bosnia. Unfortunately, there was no way of them knowing the fields were mined. On August 20, 1992, Mirsada stepped on a landmine, and as her sister Fahrija rushed to help, she also detonated a mine. Today, they still work in that same shoe factory.

In the former Yugoslavia, an estimated 4-6 million mines have been laid in mountain roads, villages, fields and forests. And, most of the people who become their victims will be civilians.
