Handicap International Luxembourg has launched this campaign focusing on the beauty and femininity of a model who has been the victim of a land mine. Her left leg has been replaced by a prosthetic leg.
The poster says that bombs and land mines are still the order of the day for certain countries and that our action is required now.
According to Handicap International, 84 territories are still affected by unexploded mines. Focusing on the Libyan revolt and the confusion that has engulfed the region since the conflicts in 2011, the poster postulates that Miss Libya 2013 may herself have been a victim of an active land mine.
To mobilise the public, Handicap International Luxembourg is organising the 13th edition of its Pyramide de Chaussures (Shoe Pyramid) event, where people are encouraged to donate their shoes in support of victims of land mines. The objective this year is to collect 1 ton of shoes. The event is taking place on Saturday 6 October at Place d’Armes.
More information on the campaign can be found here.
Following a comment (below) by Handicap International Luxembourg, I found the new version of their poster and am posting it below.
