Laos Completed Program: Armenia, Lebanon, and Eritrea: Mine Detection Dog Teams Sniff Out Mines
AngolaThe Humpty Dumpty Institute launched the first deployment of the "K-9 Demining Corps" to Lebanon and Eritrea in November 2000 in partnership with the Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) and the U.S. State Department. The Humpty Dumpty Institute's involvement started when William Rouhana, Vice-Chair and Co-Founder of The Humpty Dumpty Institute, and his wife, Amy Newmark, requested that their wedding guests make a contribution toward the training of mine detection dogs in lieu of traditional wedding gifts.

Completed Programs, Armenia, Lebanon and EritreaThe Humpty Dumpty Institute and its partners sponsored three teams of six mine detection dogs in Armenia, Lebanon, and Eritrea, raising more than US $525,000 for the purchase, training, and transport to mine-infested areas.

With more than 180,000 square meters of land cleared, these programs have made an immediate impact in improving human security and contributing to economic development in these countries.
