You can save lives and bring peace of mind to the people in countries like Iraq, Colombia, Laos, and Senegal by donating to support weapons clearance, mine risk education, and assistance to help victims of mines and other explosive remnants of war to "stand tall" again. It doesn't take much to make a big difference:
$50 provides a deminer with protective equipment
$75 can teach a class of children to stay safe
$100 clears enough land to build a playground
$500 can provide a week of advanced training for a deminer
