ISRAEL / PALESTINE

Issue: Rural communities in the West Bank were living under very difficult situations in areas that were still plagued by landmines, yet demining in Palestine was heavily restricted due to Israeli law.

Solution: Our team worked with a young landmine victim named Daniel Yuval to pass unanimous new legislation through the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) allowing for humanitarian demining operations in Palestine and to form a mine action center.

Impact: We facilitated the demining of Husan Village in the fields of Bethleham in the first ever humanitarian demining cooperation between Isrealis & Palestinians allowing the land to be returned to agricultural production.
