International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance for Mine Action is celebrated on 8 April every time. This day was approved by the UN, General assembly on 8 December 2005. 

The festivity of this day aims to raise mindfulness about landmines, ask for backing in mine action workshop and sluggishly progress towards its eradication. The mine action community plays a significant part and is led by the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS). 
 
This day aims to ask the UN and other applicable associations to come together and ask for the development of programs in places where mine conduct and explosive war tail ends pose a trouble to the life of common people. 

Let's know more about the history and significance of International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance for Mine Action. 
 
Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, also known as Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Product and Transfer ofAnti-Personnel Mines and on Their Destruction was opened for hand in 1997 and 164 countries have ratified it since also. 

It was on 8 December 2005 that UN General Assembly declared that 4 April will be observed as International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance for Mine Action every time encyclopedically. 
 
For twenty times UNMAS has been working towards the need of the affected people and barring the pitfalls of explosive hazards to the egocentrics, civilians, and peacemakers. They're suitable to do this with nonstop backing from other applicable associations and countries. 

The festivity of this day aims to give a world free of landmines and explosive remnants of war-so that individualities and communities can survive in a safe terrain and the requirements of the victims are taken care of. 
 
Twelve UN Departments and Services of the Secretariat, technical agencies, finances, and programs play a significant part in 30 countries and 3 homes while working on mine action programs. 

Mine action helps the peacemakers carry out details, assists philanthropic agencies, and for ordinary citizens to survive in a intrepid terrain where they keep fussing about risking their life for one small mistake. 
 
The theme for International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance for Mine Action 2022 is “ Safe Ground, Safe Way, Safe Home.” 

This theme aims to celebrate the achievements of the Global Mine action community which include the morning of the crusade International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) in 1992, the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997, and the achievements of the UN state members after the Mine Ban Convention came into force in 1999. 
 
This theme also highlights the work that still needs to be completed. 

“ Safe Ground” is a global crusade “ turning minefields into playing fields,” which was launched by the Secretary-General of the UN in 2019, and aimed at clearing the Earth of landmines and other explosive hazards to insure a safe terrain for development. 
 
“ Safe Way” describes the process in which deminers walk into the defiled areas and apply new technology to remove explosive hazards. 

“ Safe Home” refers to the particular security of individualities and communities inpost-conflict settings.
