Australia is setting up a $61 million US international land mine clearance project using proceeds from Candle in the Wind 1997, Elton's tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales.

 

Before her death on August 31, 1997, Diana was a strong supporter of initiatives to clear land mines from former war zones around the world.
