LSN Partnership Colombia Health
Where We Work More than 200 people have received free medical attention and participated in the rehabilitation process.  More than 70 wheelchairs, canes, and other mobility devices have been distributed.

Seeds of Hope creates Rehabilitation Brigades, small mobile health care units, which develop action plans that provide short, medium, and long-term solutions to victims of landmine and other UXO accidents in remote areas of the country. There are 45 Seeds of Hope “leaders”, young adult amputees who are selected to receive training and train others.  Leaders also have access to economic opportunity, or micro credit, projects.  Each mobile brigade typically fits about 85 survivors with prostheses.

LSN’s partnership program, Seeds of Hope, has thus far assisted some 470 victims of anti-personnel landmines.  Seeds of Hope offers courses focused on leadership techniques, community participation and development, mine risk education, and legal methods of helping affected populations defend their rights.  The initiative also helps survivors and their families get back on their feet through economic opportunities, such as small business grants.
