Over the past seven years, the Marshall Legacy Institute has donated 28 life-saving Mine Detection Dogs (MDDs) to four indigenous demining organizations in Afghanistan. One of these organizations, the Afghan Technical Consultants (ATC), recently submitted a report to MLI detailing the great work being done by MDDs Abrams, Stryker, and Toby,who searched more than 102,000 square meters (25 acres) of mine-contaminated land in 2013! ATC reports that the MDDs have directly impacted the lives of 3,207 families, or 22,005 individuals since the beginning of 2013.
