Hassani Brothers and Mine Kafon: the power of creativity to save lives

Brothers Massoud and Mahmud Hassani lived their childhood in Kabul knowing that one single slip could turn them into one of the almost 20.000 victims that lose their lives every year because of the landmines, like some of their friends.

Several years later, after settling in the Netherlands as refugees, they began the development of Mine Kafon, a project that has been perfected until becoming a sophisticated drone designed to track down and neutralize  the landmine threat, much safer, faster and cheaper than the current methods.

Since its creation, Mine Kafon has gathered high levels of international attention, specially from those countries afflicted by this problem, like their native Afghanistan.
