Calendar was produced for farmers for use as a guide to the planting season, whilst raising awareness about the presence of mines. In 1994 the British Red Cross passed a resolution to encourage help to mine victims and mine clearance activities. In November 1995 the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement launched its first global advocacy campaign to ban the use, production, stockpiling and transfer of anti-personnel mines. In 1996 the British Red Cross gave money to the ICRC for Bosnia Programme and British Red Cross Delegate, Laurence Desvignes was seconded to the ICRC to co-ordinate the project. The project was undertaken in conjunction with the Mines Awareness Group who provided expertise. The project was therefore backed by Britain not only through the British Red Cross.
