Preventing accidental killings
A father and son in Kalabyr village, Puntland State of Somalia, look at a safety leaflet designed to help prevent deaths and injuries caused by landmines, unexploded bombs and gun-related accidents.
Villagers have been extremely concerned for their safety here. Most families have a gun that they need for protection when they are out herding their livestock.  But there have been a number of accidents involving guns in the village, including deaths when a 14-year-old boy shot a friend while playing, and  when a child accidentally pulled the trigger of his father’s gun when he was holding it. MAG Community Liaison staff have given ‘risk education’ to villagers – including the distribution of safety leaflets – to help minimise the threat from guns and explosive weapons. Additionally, working with the community and the authorities, MAG is currently building an armoury for the police and for the villagers to safely store weapons.
