A Different Type of Beauty

Under the slogan "Everybody has the right to be beautiful" the Miss Landmine Angola 2008 pageant was launched in close collaboration with the Angolan government (CNIDAH) and supported by the European Union.

The crowning of the world's first Miss Landmine will be taking place in Luanda, Angola on April 4th, 2008, the UN International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action.

A simple great idea that at the same time that reminds the world about land mines and what they can do to people, it probably helps really beautiful African women to feel whole again in spite their very close encounter with a land mine.

Know more about this project by visiting their site. You can vote for your favorite candidate and learn more about this problem that affects several countries around the world.
