Our top priority: Making dangerous land safe again
PeaceTrees Vietnam’s core work is sponsoring the clearance of explosive remnants of war in central Vietnam. PeaceTrees’ mine action program has trained and equipped 150 Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians, who work every day to create safe communities by clearing explosive ordnance (EO) from fields, schoolyards, roadsides, and gardens.
Step by step since 1995, PeaceTrees has achieved remarkable results. They have removed over 110,000 dangerous landmines, cluster bombs, mortar shells and grenades from over 3,265 acres of land. Farmers can once again plow their fields and feed their families without fear. Children can play carefree and walk to school safely. Towns can expand with new houses and schools, building on land clear of danger.
