10 square meters
In over one third of the world’s nations landmines are a daily reality. Someone is killed or maimed by a landmine every 30 minutes. 90 percent of landmine victims are civilians – mostly women and children. Landmines hamper economic development, reconstruction, damage the environment and prevent refugees from returning home.
Your gift will help return 10 square meters of land to productive use by clearing it of landmines. Cleared land allows the return of refugees and internally displaced people, clearing access for humanitarian workers carrying food and water, clearing major infrastructure such as electrical grids or irrigation systems to provide energy or water to entire regions and by clearing agricultural land or factories to provide jobs to a larger population.
