With Mother's Day fast approaching, why not send a donation in honor of your Mom?
From 1st to 13th May 2018, GlobalGiving will match 100% of all new, recurring donations received by APOPO.
The donations we receive go towards empowering mothers across the globe - mothers like Gloria who strive day in, day out to look after their families through incredible adversities and hardship.
Gloria is a widowed grandmother, smallholder, and head of her family. For years she struggled with having to farm land contaminated with unexploded landmines in order to provide food for her family. With APOPO's help, Gloria and her family are now able to farm a large area of land previously off-limits to them - they're able to farm safely, in the knowledge that they won't lose life or limb to a landmine.
I am Gloria, a grandmother and smallholder.
My family depends on crops for our livelihood.
Power lines were mined during the war.
We had no choice but to farm dangerous land.
But then APOPO came and cleared the land.
Each yellow stick shows where a mine was.
My daughter and her child are safe now.
