What We Do

Today, more than ever, Project Masam’s humanitarian mine clearance operations are crucial in addressing the direct threats to the lives of civilians in Yemen caused by landmines and explosive remnants of war.

Project Masam currently has 32 teams working in liberated areas across the country and conducts humanitarian clearance in accordance with priorities set by the Yemeni National Authority.

Where We Work

Project Masam trains, equips and supervises over 450 Yemeni nationals deployed throughout Yemen, including in Aden, Al-Jawf, Aldala’a, Al-Hudaydah, Maa’rib, Shabwa and Taiz. These include deminers, administration, logistics and security support staff, who are supported by experienced technical mentors. Our headquarters are located in Aden and Ma’rib.

Our Impact

Our project outputs include the rapid identification and clearance of landmines in liberated areas, the identification and safe clearance of improvised explosive devices and technical and logistic support to the Yemen Executive Mine Action Centre (YEMAC).

Since July 2018, when Project Masam first entered Yemen, our demining teams have cleared hundreds of thousands of landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO) and improvised explosive devices.
