As the only UK aid and development charity to have shared the Nobel Peace Prize, Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an energetic, inspiring and forward thinking organisation. Wars and conflicts erupt, subside and end, but they leave behind millions of landmines, unexploded bombs and unsecure arms. These pose an every-day danger for decades and disrupt the lives of communities for generations.
