On the web page of The Slovenia International Trust Fund for Deming (ITF) there is an image that, at first glance, could be an advertisement for a toy store. The image is of a child's doll. She appears bright and happy, with red ponytails and yellow ribbons, and a sunny yellow dress. The doll's eyes glance playfully to one side, as if she is about to join a group of similarly happy friends. Suddenly, the doll's face and body change. With web animation, the doll's right leg disappears along with her smile. Then you remember, this is a website for ITF and its focus is demining. The doll herself, you realize, must be a landmine victim, happy one minute, and completely changed for the rest of her life the next. The image sticks in the mind.
