Stop Cluster Bombs

UNICEF is proud to be a member of the Aotearoa NZ Cluster Munitions Coalition (ANZCMC) who support the international call to stop cluster munitions from harming civilians.

A cluster bomb is a weapon which disperses large numbers (often hundreds) of unguided ‘bomblets’. Cluster bombs can not distinguish between military targets and civilians. Because so many bomblets fail to detonate when dispersed, they can kill and maim people long after a conflict has ended. Children make up a high proportion of casualties caused by these indiscriminate weapons. In Afghanistan, children make up one-third of cluster munitions casualties. Join UNICEF and stop cluster bombs!
