YOU can help build a world free of landmines

By giving to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) you can be part of the Nobel Peace Prizewinning global movement to bring a full stop to the devastating damage landmines continue to cause all over the world.

Antipersonnel landmines claim victims in every corner of the globe each day. Lying in wait for their victims, they do not discriminate between the footfall of a soldier or that of a child, and remain a threat long after conflict ends.

Libyan government forces have also placed the T-AB-1 landmine in Misrata. The T-AB-1 plastic antipersonnel mine has a low metal content and is therefore difficult to detect.

Please give whatever you can, but here are some ways your money can make a difference:

  • $75 / 55 Euros could pay for a day’s accessible transport for one of our landmine survivors to attend a UN summit in Geneva, holding governments accountable to the damage this weapon causes;
  • $100 / 75 Euros could pay for one day’s participation of an ICBL expert global campaigner from an affected country at an international conference on landmines, bringing an invaluable perspective to government discussions;
  • $150 / 115 Euros could cover one hour of translation, allowing campaigners speaking dozens of different languages to work together and develop strong advocacy messages without difficulties;
  • $500 / 380 Euros could help pay for an in-country research team to bear witness to how landmines continue to affect real people on the ground, enabling the ICBL to report this back to governments;
  • $1000 / 765 Euros could help pay for one of our national campaigners to buy a computer, install software, secure an internet connection, establishing a link with the global campaign they play such a vital part of;
  • $2000 / 1530 Euros could help campaigners activate public awareness-raising in their own country on the damage landmines cause, travelling to their nation’s capitals to meet government officials, organising events and holding press conferences.

Donate today (to find out how view the bottom of this page) and join the ICBL in calling for every country in the world to join the ban and make sure that the devastation caused by mines ends in our lifetimes.

In 2011 there was more reported use of landmines by government forces than in any year since 2004, showing that even though the Mine Ban Treaty is a powerful piece of international law, as long as landmines are available they are at risk of being used.

Mines are a long-lasting and deadly legacy of war. Hundreds of people in Libya, Iraq, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, where the scars of conflict are new, must add the threat of mines to their struggle to overcome the violence. Elsewhere, in Angola, Cambodia, Bosnia, Mozambique and dozens of other countries, thousands face landmines as a lethal barrier to their daily lives.

As it enters its 20th year, the ICBL remains the global driving force behind the drive to stop to landmines being used, bringing the voices of those living with the effects of mines to the world stage, and fighting for improved lives for the many landmine survivors worldwide. By donating now, you can become part of this movement.

Thanks to the work of the ICBL, more than 80 per cent of the world’s countries are now bound by the Mine Ban Treaty. Millions of landmines have been cleared and destroyed, releasing more than 3,000km2 of safe land – an area twice the size of London. More than 4 billion dollars have been invested in mine clearance, and more than 45 million stockpiled mines have been destroyed – never to claim another life or limb.

The number of people killed or injured by mines each year has fallen dramatically from around 20,000 in 1999 to just over 4,000 in 2010.

But, this is still 4,000 people far too many. Landmines still pose a lethal threat to millions of people – often in the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities – preventing access land and the chance to build safer and more prosperous futures for themselves and their children. Tens of thousands of people are still without the support they need to cope with the life-shattering injuries landmines cause.

By donating to the ICBL you will help ensure all states keep their binding word under the Treaty to eradicate the threat of mines and provide better and more integrated support to victims.

If you are in the United States, you can donate to the ICBL via the Combined Federal Campaign until the end of December. To find out how please click here.
