How to help

Our CHAMPS student, Josef Marschall, raised his own campaign to help drawing donations for the Marshall Legacy Institute. Despite COVID-19, Josef continued his amazing work, advocating for our great cause and raising funds to sponsor his very own Mine Detection Dog. Thank you Josef for your kindness, perseverance, and spirit.

Make a Donation

Help us help the men, women, and children living in war-torn countries to live free from the fear of landmines and other explosives. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and dedicate it to someone you love! This is a wonderful 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.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is the most mine contaminated country in Europe. MLI is committed to helping rid this beautiful country of landmines, and we need your help! Help us get more MDDs on the ground in Bosnia to sniff out mines and help landmine survivors with medical assistance and vocational training.

Through MLI's CHAMPS program, more than 250 landmine survivors in Yemen have received the medical attention they desperately need, such as prosthetics and rehabilitative care. There are many more survivors still in need of medical assistance, and we can provide help with your support!

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.
