 A tribute to civilian victims 

According to the Explosive Weapons Monitor, when explosive weapons are used in populated areas, 90% of the victims are civilians

To raise awareness of this terrifying situation, Humanity & Inclusion Canada has invited Bryan Beyung to take part in an extraordinary artistic operation. The Cambodian-born artist will paint a giant fresco.

Using art as a vehicle for solidarity, Humanity & Inclusion collaborated with Bryan to create a strong, committed visual message inviting us to take part in this fight.

Bryan Beyung is a visual artist, born in Montreal to a Chinese-Cambodian family. His artistic approach would fall under the autoethnographic journey. He mainly addresses diasporic heritage by creating works based on memories, ideas and images related to this experience. His work can be seen in the United States, Canada, Haïti, France, Morocco and Cambodia. Thanks to the support of Humanity & Inclusion, Montreal will be adorned with his latest mural.

 Humanity & Inclusion against armed violence 

 

Humanity & Inclusion is the leading NGO in the field of global assistance to people with disabilities in the humanitarian sector. The organization, with a staff of over 5,000, has been operating for over 40 years in 60 countries, and runs projects against armed violence in 18 countries. Its teams operate in extremely fragile contexts, such as Gaza, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen, as well as in countries polluted by former mines/explosive ordnance, such as Colombia, Laos, Senegal and Chad.

 

RISK EDUCATION

Humanité & Inclusion teams work hand-in-hand with local communities to raise awareness of the risks of unexploded ordnance and reduce accidents.

 

MINE CLEARANCE AND DECONTAMINATION

The mission of Humanity & Inclusion's mine clearance teams is to give local populations back their freedom to live, in complete safety.

 

VICTIM ASSISTANCE

Humanity & Inclusion provides long-term support for survivors of explosive weapons, their families and their communities, in a process of inclusion that includes medical assistance, rehabilitation services and access to social, educational, professional, sporting, civic and cultural activities. The organization also supports governments in implementing public policies in favor of victims of explosive weapons, in line with international treaty obligations.

 

CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION

Humanity & Inclusion's "conflict transformation" projects aim to build more peaceful societies by working on behaviors and relationships between communities in contexts of tension or war. Conflict transformation will address traumas and grievances, for example, by tackling collective trauma and promoting mediation, reconciliation and so on.

 

POLITICAL COMMITMENT

In 1997, Humanity & Inclusion was co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize as a founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), which led to the signing of the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (Ottawa Treaty). The organization then played an active role in the Campaign to Ban Cluster Bombs, which led to the Convention on Cluster Munitions (Oslo Convention) in 2008. Humanity & Inclusion monitors the implementation of these two treaties. Since 2015, the organization has also been lobbying with the International Network on Explosive Weapons (INEW) collective for the adoption and implementation by states of a political declaration designed to regulate the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.
