Mine Kafon began its roots with Massoud Hassani’s “Mine Kafon Ball” in 2011. The two Afghan brothers, Massoud and Mahmud, led a campaign to realise the project as both a legitimate mine clearing device and a global awareness project. With a huge media impact and success in many multinational competitions, the project helped inspire new individuals to enter the global discussion around a topic still predominant in many communities across the world: landmine clearance.
Mine Kafon today develops innovative systems driven by engineering and creativity. The latest range of solutions aimed at UXO clearance following conflict hope to use disruptive technologies to change how de-mining efforts are undertaken, making clearance faster, safer, cheaper and easier to implement across the diverse regions affected.
