MLI Donates Two MDDs to Sniff out Landmines in Bosnia

December 19, 2019

MLI, during a visit to Bosnia-Herzegovina, met with the Federal Administration of Civil Protection (FACP), to officially hand over to them MDDs Boa-Alma and Rio-Hunter. These two highly trained Mine Detection Dogs, trained by the Mine Detection Dog Center in Bosnia-Herzegovina, are the newest members of the FACP’s MDD Unit.

 

These MDDs were sponsored by General Dynamics and the Edelmann family, both longtime and generous MLI supporters. To date, MLI has donated 46 Mine Detection Dogs to clearance organizations in Bosnia-Herzegovina, including 10 to the FACP. This latest MDD donation was implemented in partnership with ITF Enhancing Human Security.
