FSD has been delivering demining, humanitarian and development aid projects since 1997. Currently, we have programmes in 8 countries where we are commited to making land safe, providing a safer future for generations to come, and helping people to rebuild their lives.
FSD clears landmines and assists victims in the northeastern province of Badakhshan. This remote, mountainous province is very hard to reach, so FSD operates a cross-border operation from the Tajik side.
FSD works with international donors and partners in support of the Peace Process to implement rehabilitation and post-conflict recovery and stability activities.
FSD provides capacity building to the Chadian Mine Action Centre through mentoring, training and infrastructure projects.
FSD clears improvised explosive devices and other explosive remnants of war so that the displaced population can return to their villages and homes.
FSD provides mine action and environmental experts to the national mine action centre to help coordinate operations, increase efficiency and conduct planning on prioritisation, policy, procedures and quality assurance.
FSD teams survey UXO-impacted villages in support of the Peace Agreement in the Bangsamoro autonomous region in Muslim Mindanao.
FSD works in the Eastern Donbass region of Ukraine providing unexploded ordnance clearance teams alongside explosive ordnance risk education teams who walk with conflict-affected communities to reduce the threats of explosive contamination.
“I was playing outside with some friends when one of them picked up a piece of metal lying on the floor. Suddenly there was an explosion. We all fell to the ground. I felt like I had been hit in the back. ” Sanita, 11 years old.
Like Sanita, many children walk in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance on a daily basis. Since 1997, FSD has worked tirelessly to locate and eliminate these dangerous legacies of war around the world, and to prevent accidents through awareness campaigns. FSD also remediated sites polluted by toxic waste, and supports peace and development in conflict-affected countries.
Together, we can act. Every donation, no matter how small, helps shape a safer future for those who have already suffered so much.
