The Angola Field Group invites you to ‘Demining – the New Accelerated Approach’, this Thursday, May 22, at 8:00pm at the Viking Club. Estimates predict that it will take 50 years to clear mines and other explosive remnanats of war here in Angola using traditional methods. Our presenter, Kjersti Fjellhaug, a demining expert with Norwegian People Aid (NPA) and formerly with the Mine Advisory Group, will talk about the new scientific approach to demining that will allow NPA to get rid of the problem in the five provinces where they are working, in 7 short years. Kjersti has lived in Angola for 5 years and is presently based in Malange where she is piloting the new ‘land release’ concept using survey information.

Everybody is welcome to attend this evening. In close cooperation with the Viking Club, this event is offered free of charge. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are sold at the bar, $3.00 each. Drink coupons available. If you would like to view or download a map showing the location of the Viking Club, please click here
