Survivor Stories
Song Kosal - Cambodia

When she was just four years old, Song Kosal lost her leg to a landmine in Battambang, Cambodia. She spoke atthe UN podium at the Convention on Conventional Weapons in Austria in 1995 when she was 12 years old. She has promoted the ban against mines ever since. On a visit to Australia in 1997 she launched the KIDS AGAINST WAR campaign, which invites kids around the world to build a mine-free world for the next generation of children. She has campaigned in Spain, Japan, Canada, Mozambique, Australia and Cambodia. Petitions collected from these countries and others worldwide were presented to the U.S. government. She attended the signing of the Ottawa Treaty and presented the first annual Landmine Monitor to Mozambique's president Joaquim Chissano at the First Meeting of States Parties.
