Botswana – May 2018 Deployment

Fenix have recently completed a research and development mission in Botswana; working alongside the Norwegian People’s Aid: Humanitarian Disarmament and the Botswana Defence Force.

The productive trip was one of contrasts. From the research and demolition of cluster munitions, submunitions and mortars such as the CB-250-K, PM1 and M971, to visiting the Botswana Defence Force’s Animal Awareness Training Centre. Here soldiers are taught¬†about animal behaviour to remove the fear of predatory animals during patrols.

The team is already looking forward to their next visit to Botswana, and the opportunity to work further with the highly professional BDF team.
