Help a Landmine Survivor Walk Again & Regain Hope for their Future
The destruction caused by landmines doesn’t end when the bomb detonates and the debris settles. Those who survive are left with life-altering injuries. For children who are injured by landmines, their physical injuries are often more severe than adults, their emotional trauma greater, and their economic prospects significantly bleaker. The majority of child mine victims have little chance of receiving the prostheses or medical care they need, and therefore are unlikely to go to school, learn skills that could help them adapt to their new condition, or marry when they grow up. For adult mine victims, the challenges can be overwhelming, as well, and they typically have great difficulty finding employment and are unable to support themselves or their family members.
Therefore, MLI works to provide medical treatment, prostheses, and vocational education classes (sewing, beekeeping, computer training, carpentry, etc) to help landmine survivors and their families. This #GivingTuesday, every dollar donated to MLI will be used to provide high-quality prosthetic limbs and vocational training to landmine survivors, enabling them to walk again and regain hope for their future. Thank you for your support!
