The clip presents the case study of a young boy who became seriously injured when he stepped on a landmine. Many injuries from unexploded weapons, including landmines, happen because children find them scattered around where they play, and tamper with them. Communities and aid agencies work hard to reduce the number of injuries through education programmes.
The clip ends with a question for a KS3 class to discuss: Why does a weapon designed to harm fighters find its way into so many children’s lives?
