Survivors' Assistance Update

Thanks to all of your support, and in partnership with Help the Afghan Children (HTAC), MLI’s Survivors’ Assistance Afghanistan program has found much success recently:

 An estimated 26,200 people participated in MLI and HTAC-coordinated landmine awareness meetings. No mine incidents were reported in the areas where people received awareness training.

2,500 people, including 900 women, were identified as needing assistance. Now that there is an accurate count of those requiring help, rehab and prosthetics can be provided to those who need them. 

120 mine-affected people, including 35 women, received wheelchairs, crutches, canes, and orthotic socks through MLI’s Survivors' Assistance Afghanistan program

1 boy and 2 girls were taken to Jalalabad International Red Cross Hospital to be fitted for and receive prosthetic limbs

 Due to the great benefits of the program, treasured and appreciated by those in need, MLI and HTAC are working to expand the program to other Afghan Provinces interested in participating.
