UNICEF to help teach Ukrainians mine safety

Specialists with the State Emergency Service discussed with the team of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Ukraine their joint efforts to inform and educate the Ukrainians on mine safety rules.

That’s according to the SES press service, Ukrinform reports.

"Today, the SES and UNICEF are running a joint campaign and developing products that help people, especially the younger generation, understand the dangers of explosives, learn to recognize them, and act properly," the statement said.

It is noted that such work is carried out through the media, social networks, outdoor advertising, and directly with children during joint classes.

Oleksandr Chekrygin, Director of the SES Emergency Prevention Department, thanked UNICEF for its help and productive work.

"The result of such efforts should see a reduction in the number of injuries caused by ordnance and prevention of other emergencies. Through children, we must teach adults safety rules," he said.

In turn, UNICEF's Behavioral Change Project Manager Tatiana Kazanzhi presented new ideas for further collaboration. In particular, rescuers lead classes for children in "Joint Children's Points", camps where Emergency Service specialists can directly teach Ukrainian youths safety rules and answer their questions.

As Ukrinform reported, as of June 21, bomb squads of the State Emergency Service had detected and neutralized almost 140,000 explosive devices, including 1,994 aviation bombs.
