Tens of millions of landmines lie buried in more than 80 countries. More than 80% of landmine victims are civilians; 25% are children.
Landmines most often cause limb loss or death, but can also cause vision loss and other injuries.
More than 300,000 people now live with landmine-related injuries.
LSN’s seven Networks, partnerships and training programs are reaching out to survivors in 25 of the 40 most mine- affected nations and territories.
LSN has helped thousands of families affected by landmines, war and civil strife, provided more than 60,000 home and hospital peer visits with survivors, and helped launch hundreds of survivor-owned businesses.
