BBC America is offering the opportunity to pose questions to Heather Mills about land mines and their terrible effects. BBC America is offering this opportunity to honor Princess Diana and and the work she did during her lifetime to raise awareness of the plight of land mine victims. In January 1997, the year she died, Princess Diana started her anti-land mine campaign in earnest when she visited Angola in southern Africa on behalf of the Red Cross. During the final weeks of her life, Princess Diana visited the minefields of Bosnia to focus attention on the innocent victims of land mines, many of whom were children who had lost a hand, a foot, an eye or worse. After her visit to Bosnia, the Princess of Wales was quoted as saying, "Poverty I have seen in many places, but not war damage of this kind."
The BBC America web site has posted a form through which your questions about land mines and their effects will be delivered to Heather Mills. Heather's responses to these question will be posted on the site in June.
