One afternoon in 1998, Selma Gušo joined her family for a picnic in a field outside Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. While there, she stepped on an anti-personnel landmine and lost part of her leg. Selma is one of nearly 2,000 people who have been injured or killed by landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) that remain from the conflicts that rocked the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s.
