Projects: Angola I - Truce & Consequences: Truce & Consequences

João Manuel Dias lie in hospital with an amputated leg after stepping on a landmine. He spent years as a soldier and fought in the country's long civil war. He finally left the military in 2009 to return to his village where he worked as a secretary for the village administration. Then one day he walked a few meters from his house to collect some wooden poles in order to build a fence and stepped on the landmine. Luena, Angola.Photo © J.B. Russell
