A Congolese soldier with the Forces Armées de la République Démocratique du Congo (FARDC) starts a one-man drill, a methodical and deliberate procedure to conduct minefield clearance . The stick that is in front of him is a one-meter stick that is slowly inched forward as his lane is cleared. This engagement, which is part of the Humanitarian Mine Action program, took place April 6- 27 at Camp Base in Kisangani, the capitol of the Orientale Province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
