Dogs that save lives

Dogs vs. landmines in Colombia: Given the need to provide communities with cleared and safe land as fast as possible, efficiency is key to perform effective and timely land release. Therefore, since Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) began its work in Mine Action in the 1990’s, the organization has always sought new resources and skills for the detection of antipersonnel mines or other explosive devices found on the ground. As part of this search, NPA included Mine Detection Dogs (MDD) on its humanitarian demining toolbox. And, since their inclusion, dogs became an essential part of the organization.
