This year marks the 40th anniversary of the end of U.S. military involvement in Vietnam, but for many the war continues in the form of millions of landmines and bombs that litter the landscape.
I am headed to Vietnam this month and will be posting videos and pictures from my trip to show you more about the work of Clear Path and Mines Advisory Group.
In the meantime, please donate by clicking the button to the right and giving whatever you can.
The first twenty donations will receive a Clear Path International hat signed by me and a tote bag from Mines Adivisory Group.
Thanks, and I will be back in touch once I am in Vietnam.
- Mines Advisory Group has cleared over 7 million square meters of land comntaminated by unexploded ordnance since 1999 in Vietnam, benefitting more than 1.8 million people who can now farm their land, build their homes and let their children play safely without fear of injury or death from accidental explosions.” .
- Clear Path International has assisted over 12,000 survivors of accidents involving landmines and bombs in 16 provinces in Vietnam since 2000.
But there is a lot of work to be done - acres left to clear and survivors left to serve.
Join us and our partners to raise $50,000 dollars so:
1. MAG can clear 4,800 m2 of land to be used to build schools, community houses and agricultural areas, benefitting over 3,500 people in 6 different villages.
2. CPI can support 150 survivors and their families with medical treatments, prosthetics and scholarships.
Together we can end the Vietnam War for everyone - Donate today!
