The Impact of Mine Detection Dogs in Azerbaijan

MLI has worked with Azerbaijan since 2005, assisting the Mine Action Agency for the Republic of Azerbaijan (ANAMA) in their mine clearance operations through the donation of 65 mine detection dogs. These lifesaving canines have aided in the search and clearance of 36,135,799 square meters of mine impacted land, returning it to safe use for people to work, live, and play. Aiden's campaign will help raise the funds for a lifesaving MDD that will help to strengthen ANAMA’s MDD capacity and assist in the critical demining efforts that remain in Azerbaijan!

Sponsor a Dog

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.

Sponsor a Survivor

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. Learn more here.
