Our work has an impact. All our projects significantly improve the social and economic situation of the affected population. We have participated in many projects in 14 countries since 1997. And we will carry on.
During the first 20 years of our existence, we
- Demined 10,549,355 square kilometres of land, the equivalent of 1,600 football pitches
- Neutralised more than 50,000 explosive devices
- Informed around 200,000 people about the risks posed by explosive devices
But mines and unexploded remnants of war continue to threaten humans and animals in many countries of the world. That is why we are active in regions where we can achieve the most with the means at our disposal: in remote areas plagued by poverty.
