Jake Delman is an intern at the Office of Public Policy and Advocacy, U.S. Fund for UNICEF At the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, we believe that students can play a vital role in helping the world’s children survive and thrive. That’s why we are so impressed with a group in West Virginia called Proud Students Against Landmines and Cluster Bombs (PSALM). PSALM students want a world where ALL children can walk and play without fear. In commemoration of International Mine Awareness Day on April 4, members of PSALM took part in the global Lend Your Leg campaign: asking participants to roll up a trouser-leg to draw attention to the fact that too many people, including children, lose their legs—or worse—from accidental encounters with landmines. These students also have a message for the U.S. Government: It’s time for us to join the International Mine Ban Treaty. cluster munitions and supported the international Mine Ban Treaty, because landmines kill children long after conflicts end. Unfortunately, the United States still has not ratified the Mine Ban Treaty—even though all of its NATO allies are parties to the treaty. Our hats are off to PSALM—we hope their actions help put a stop to the unnecessary injuries and deaths that landmines inflict on kids around the world.
