APOPO is a Belgian NGO that has developed an innovative system deploying African giant pouched rats (nicknamed HeroRATs) to detect landmines or tuberculosis, using their extraordinary sense of smell. APOPO's scent detection technology has a massive potential to relieve human suffering and promote development when deployed in TB and landmine response, as well as in currently unexplored fields.

Born in December 2012 in Morogoro, Tanzania, Hamisi is a young, energetic rat that is being trained to detect tuberculosis. HeroRats like Hamisi have saved over 2,900 lives by correctly identifying tuberculosis positive patients that were originally missed by microscopy in local hospitals in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Hamisi is full of energy and loves banana treats as a positive reward for his good work. His hobbies include grooming, tunneling, and the Friday Feast we give him and his friends. project reportread updates from the field
Why don't Cambodians play soccer ?

If you want to play soccer in Cambodia, you first need to clear the land of the remnants of war. On a decent size soccer field, you would find on average 3.5 anti-personnel mines and 33 pieces of unexploded ordnance. People still get injured or killed by mines. It's not safe for children to play, or for farmers to grow rice. So soccer is not as popular as growing food or a life without fear for your life and limbs. Help us clear an area the surface of the 12 FIFA World Cup venues ! project reportread updates from the field
