The floor is lava! game is a reminder of danger posed by landmines

Explosive weapons

"The floor is lava" is taking the internet by storm. But for some, it's not a game.

 

Imagine that every step you take puts your life in danger. Imagine that every child's playtime could lead to death or serious injury. In 56 countries worldwide, this is the reality for many people, living with the hidden danger of landmines.

Landmines don't differentiate between the foot of a child or a soldier.

Every day, landmines and explosive remnants of war claim 18 new victims. Survivors need support to relearn how to walk and be independent. And children should be able to play again without fear.
