Mines Advisory Group (MAG) "expertly clears abandoned weapons and landmines, but that isn’t what makes us unique. What sets us apart is our focus on the impact our work has on people’s lives.

"Operating since 1989 and having worked on a variety of conflict-related projects in around 35 countries, MAG currently has programmes in Angola, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Laos, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Vietnam, as well as projects in Burundi, Cyprus, Republic of the Congo and Somalia.

"MAG is also co-laureate of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded for our work with the International Campaign to Ban Landmines." [1]

"By the end of 1996, MAG's board of trustees invited Lou McGrath, who had administered the charity in its early days and played a key role in its technical research, to become its executive director." [2]

Existing patrons are Stuart Hughes (BBC journalist and landmine survivor), Andy Kershaw, artist John Buckley, anti-war campaigner Peggy Preston among others."
