Into the Fire
“One wrong step will cost me my life”
In an area of Iraq destroyed by ISIS, Hana Khider leads an all-female team of Yazidi deminers in their attempts to clear the land of mines. Their job involves painstakingly searching for booby traps in bombed out buildings and fields, where one wrong move means certain death. Even though the devastations caused by ISIS still are evident and the local people are suffering, they are trying to forget the past and remain hopeful. Hana works for the Mines Advisory Group, an organisation who are part of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines.
Their work and discoveries range from how cells adapt to changes in levels of oxygen to our ability to fight global poverty.
