Support A Mine Ban
International Campaign to Ban Landmines
Landmines are everywhere: every region in the world is mine-affected. More than 80 countries are affected by landmines and/or unexploded ordnances. It is impossible to know exactly how many mines rest in the ground worldwide. The actual number of mines, however, is less important than their impact: the presence of two or three mines, or even the mere suspicion of mines, is enough to render a large patch of land unusable by a community.
Your gift will permit a member organization of the ICBL, located in a mine-affected region, to advocate for the full implementation of the Mine Ban Treaty in their country. Local ICBL member organizations lobby for and assist in the development of practical and efficient programs aimed at destroying antipersonnel stockpiles and removing mines from the ground.
