Challenge

For many war-torn countries, a primary obstacle in achieving sustainable progress is the deadly legacy of landmines, which inflict horrendous injuries on innocent civilians and make vast expanses of land unusable. Landmine survivors face life-long challenges and are often unable to find employment to support themselves or afford adequate medical care. In many countries, like Yemen, there is not the capacity to provide landmine survivors with the medical care they need, such as prosthetic limbs.

Solution

MLI's Survivors' Assistance program combats the challenges faced by landmine survivors by providing prosthetic limbs, rehabilitative treatments and vocational training to victims to help them recover from their injuries and become self-sufficient.

Long-Term Impact

The program will provide medical treatment, prostheses, and vocational training to landmine survivors to help them help themselves and to promote hope, growth and stability in mine-affected countries.
