Imagine living surrounded by landmines. No step is safe. Your children walk to school through a minefield. They are hungry—do you risk farming mined land or see them starve?
It doesn’t need to be this way.
We make land safe by clearing landmines and other explosives, such as IEDs (improvised explosive devices), so families torn apart by conflict can return and rebuild their lives in safety.
Once the mines are gone, confidence is restored. Minefields become fields of crops. Battlefields become playgrounds. Fear turns to hope and life begins again.
Clearing landmines is a painstaking process. Most of our clearance work is done by hand but sometimes the terrain and nature of the debris makes clearing with machines more practical.
We work in partnership with the communities we serve. By employing local men and women, we create jobs and help families get back on their feet.
