José Ramos-Horta

Nobel Peace Prize (1996), former President of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste (2007-2012) and former Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General in Guinea-Bissau (2013-2014).

“Land mines buried in fields during countless wars around the world continue to exact a heavy toll on innocent villagers, farmers, mothers and school children. This is not a glamorous mission and seldom draws media and celebrity attention. So I'm honoured to join with the courageous men and women of the Swiss NGO "Digger Foundation" to continue their selfless and often incognito mission to help clear mines in countries like Guinea-Bissau and others.”
