There are an estimated six to eight million landmines still left in the ground in Cambodia., where about three quarters of Cambodians live in the rural countryside, where at least six million landmines are still buried.
Farmers risk their lives to grow food where landmines have not been cleared. One in five Cambodians lives below the country's poverty line of $1,086/year!
