We clear landmines and destroy weapons to save and improve lives worldwide.


When we survived the uninsured loss of 2007, which took me to the absolute knife edge of bankruptcy, we continued to face further challenges, and the future of my company was uncertain for many years, though we didn't share this fact widely.

When I told people about what had actually happened to us, they seemed genuinely amazed that we actually survived.  Many  suggested that I write it all down but like everyone else, I ALWAYS had other things to do...

So on day 8 of the lock-down in 2012, I started writing my book and a share of the proceeds will be donated to MAG.

About the charity

Every single day, 15 people are killed or injured because of landmines and other explosive weapons. Half of all civilian casualties are children. MAG finds and destroys these weapons to save lives and rebuild futures; helping people to grow crops, attend school and build homes.
