Najiba Qasemi is a member of the first-ever, women-led demining team in #Afghanistan - a first-of-its-kind in the 30-year history of humanitarian mine action. In 2018, Ms. Qasemi and her @un_mineaction colleagues began clearing mines and educating Afghan villagers about the dangers of explosive devices. Since then, they have cleared mines and other explosives from more than 51,000 square meters of land, allowing local citizens to resume farming and other activities. In Afghanistan and around the world, members of the #UnitedNations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) put their lives at risk to reduce danger and protect people from the physical and psychological harm caused by explosive hazards.
