In partnership with Amnesty International USA, twenty paintings drawn by children who live in unexploded ordinance (UXO) affected areas in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam will be shown in an April 2010 exhibition of The Amnesty International Human Right Art Festival.

The children's paintings will be hang from April 12 to 28 in Montgomery College Cafritz Hallway Gallery, Maryland, USA.

An exhibition of twenty paintings which will be displayed stand out among the paintings submitted from children enrolling in 25 elementary and secondary schools in Cam Lo District, Vietnam. All children's paintings are for sale to support programs of project Renew.

These paintings were submitted via a “bombs and mine drawing” contest, one of the many risk education activities within Project RENEW’s integrated Mine Risk Education in support of mobile Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) operations. The purpose of the student drawing contest is to help students express their creativity with ideas about an environment free from UXO. This also helps to educate children about the dangers of ERW, drawing on their responsibility in the community common efforts in disseminating risk education messages.
