Masam
Saving Lives

Landmines are a massive impediment to social and economic development efforts, exposing citizens to risk generation after generation. To enhance the security measures in the region and ensure Yemen can rebuild and find stability, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia launched the Project for Landmine Clearance Masam in December 2017.
Training and operations commenced months later, with the first team entering Yemen in February 2018. Our work is conducted under the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), as part of KSRelief’s efforts to support landmine victims. The efforts have already created a safe space to allow basic humanitarian and reconstruction activities to proceed safely and without fear.
