0 комментарии339

Наследник династии Виндзоров принц Гарри отправился в Африку, где сделал остановку в Дирико – одном из печально известных регионов Анголы. Последний до сих пор не до конца очищен от противопехотных мин после гражданской войны. Там герцог Сассекский повторил геройский поступок своей матери, трагически ушедшей из жизни любимицы миллионов принцессы Дианы.

“If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and uninhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalTourAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA

Речь идет о «прогулке» принцессы Дианы в защитном жилете и шлеме по минным полям. Таким образом, она пыталась привлечь внимание к серьезной проблеме и надо сказать добилась неплохих результатов. Сейчас благодаря участию принцессы Дианы в акции по очистки земли часть территории считается безопасной. Однако работа еще не окончена, поскольку некоторые участки Анголы все еще представляют опасность для жизни людей.

Так, принц Гарри, облачившись в аналогичный костюм, решил последовать примеру родительницы. Наследник британской короны примкнул к представителям благотворительной организации «HALO Trust», выполняющим благородную миссию, и вместе с ними прошелся по минному полю. Об этом стало известно благодаря публикации в официальном аккаунте герцога и герцогини Сассекской в «Инстаграм».

Согласно планам «HALO Trust», к 2025 году все мины на территории Анголы, из-за которых 60 миллионов человек ежедневно испытывают страх, должны быть уничтожены.
