ベトナム、クアン・トリ州トレウ地方発:

67歳の父、息子1人、娘2人、孫3人、不発弾から、くず鉄を取り出そうとして重傷。

 タン氏は、重傷を負い、病院に被き込まれた。外科医は、タン氏の右腕を切断し、左手、首、顎骨、左ひじ、両足に重傷を負った。ヴォプウオン村の住民曰く「タンさんは、わずかばかりの現金収入を得るために、戦場域物を集めて金属スクラップとして売っていた」と。いつものことであれば、おじいさんが、不発弾の解体作業中、両親は作業中で、孫たちは家の中で遊んでいた。今回は、幸運にも、子供たちは、学校に行っており無事であった。

 本日早朝、RENEWの地域支援チームと不発弾処理班と共同して、村に入りこの事故を起こした家を訪問した。そこには、多くの爆発した痕跡があり、破片が飛散していた。そして、クラスター爆弾からら炸薬を取出そうとしていたことが明白であった。そして、クラスター爆弾から爆薬を取出そうとして、爆発を起こし、これが誘爆を起こしたのである。RENEWの不発弾処理班は、100品目もの不発弾をこ地域から除去するまで、立ち入り禁止とした。

 1975年ヴトナム戦争終了以降、不発弾による死傷者数の34%は、不発弾の金属部品を取り出す金属スクラップ回収作業中の事故であった。つまり、死傷者総数104,000人の1/3の死傷者がこの種の事故である。

ベトナムのRENEWによる2012年の不発弾除去数は7月4日時点で約1,800発

ベトナムの不発弾処理NGOであるPROJECT RENEWより、次のような電子メールが入っておりましたので、皆様と共有いたします。

Dear Masaru Yamamoto,

With this second quarterly newsletter, we’re pleased to update you about the continuing successes of Project RENEW in helping to keep the people of Quang Tri Province safe from unexploded ordnance. The danger of unexploded ordnance contamination around the former DMZ area still exists. But the threat is being reduced.

In the past 12 months, there have been five accidents compared to seven during the same period in 2010 and 2011, and far less than the 29 accidents in 2001 when Project RENEW began operations.

Thank you for all of your support and contributions to making this effort a reality.

So far twice as many UXO – 1,880 items – found and safely destroyed this yearIt was a typical Tuesday morning in early June. Project RENEW’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team started their work at 7:00 am to try and beat Quang Tri’s summer heat. The mission today was to remove three items of unexploded ordnance (UXO) that had been reported by local residents in Ai Tu Commune, Trieu Phong District.

Identification and removal of dangerous ordnance is also a family and a community responsibility On a summer day in early July 2012, 13-year-old Le Phuoc Hai from Ta Kien Village, Trieu Giang Commune of Trieu Phong District spotted UXO while playing with his friends in his family’s garden. He marked the site, ran to RENEW’s Community Support Team (CST) who were conducting their daily survey in the same village. Fifteen minutes later, in response to the information passed on by CST, RENEW’s EOD team arrived at the scene and safely removed 23 items of UXO buried under rotten leaves just 15 meters from Hai’s house.

Micro-credit loans continue to be a durable way for UXO survivor women and their families to climb out of povertyMs Hoang Thi Thuy was content living a simple life with her husband and four children until October 2010 when a mortar stole away much that she loved. Two years later
that day still haunts her. While routinely clearing weeds from around their acacia trees, Thuy’s husband hit a UXO. Thuy was working some distance away, and she was injured, but not seriously, by mortar fragments that penetrated her forehead and nose. Not as lucky, her husband was severely injured, and
in the hospital five hours later, he died.

Top international donors visit Mine Action Visitor Center, discuss UXO problem at the Consultative Group meeting for the first time. More than 100 delegates from the United Nations, the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, foreign embassies and Vietnamese ministries and central government agencies visited the Mine Action Visitor Center on June 4th as part of the Mid-Year Consultative Group (CG) Meeting for Vietnam. This annual international conference, from June 4th to 6th, was held this year for the first time in Quang Tri Province.
