How to Help
We are working towards eliminating the evils that landmines inflict upon innocent people, animals and communities. Please help; your support will help people help themselves. We have provided several easy ways to donate or become involved.
This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Freedom from Fear of Landmines
This holiday season, help men, women, and children live free from the fear of landmines and other explosives. If you are able, please consider making a tax-deductible donation this holiday season, or choose a life-saving gift below, and dedicate it to someone you love. You will receive holiday cards in the mail from us (see below), which are a perfect way to tell your loved ones how your donation will support our work in countries like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia Herzegovina, Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, and Yemen. Learn more here.
Dedicate your donation to someone you love! We will send you up to 10 holiday cards (per $50 donation) which you can mail to your friends and family to show them not only how you are helping to bring peace and security to vulnerable communities around the world, but also that you are thinking of them throughout this Holiday season. Here is Mine Detection Dog Madjesty, sponsored by private American citizens and asking you to give the gift of freedom this winter! Please donate here.
Join the Share-A-Dog Program
For just $21/month or an annual donation of $250, you can join the Share-A-Dog program and receive regular updates about one of MLI’s dogs! Each dollar you donate helps a mine detection dog search 400 square feet! In just a month, these amazing MDDs are able to “sniff out” approximately 2 acres of mine-contaminated land, or 8,400 square meters, so you will know that your donation is truly making a difference and saving lives. Learn more here.
It costs $25,000 to purchase, train, and send a mine detection dog to a mine affected country. Fully sponsoring a mine detection dog allows you to make an invaluable contribution towards removing landmines that threaten the lives, health, and peace of many communities around the world. You will receive regular updates and photos about your dog and you get to name him/her! MLI also invites MDD sponsors to join us in visiting mine-affected countries each year so you can see your dog at work. Please contact us for more information or Learn More here.
Children injured by landmines face a life-time of struggles. In many countries, the children who have lost limbs do not have access to the medical care, counseling, or prosthetic limbs they need to help them recover from this devastating tragedy. Many are unable to continue attending school and face seemingly insurmountable challenges in a life that would have been difficult under the best of circumstances. You can help a child receive the physical and psychological treatment needed to move forward by supporting our Survivors’ Assistance program. Help a Landmine Survivor Recover Today!
Workplace Giving and Combined Federal Campaign
Workplace Giving & Matching Gift Programs: MLI is proud to be a beneficiary of the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFC #45559). Please consider supporting us through your workplace giving program. Many employers match charitable donations made by their employees. If your employer has such a program, you can double or even triple the size of your gift to MLI.
MLI would like thank all of our generous donors and supporters. Because of you we are closer to ending the landmine epidemic.
