Oscar Pistorius is an ambassador for the Mineseeker Foundation. This initiative is dedicated to the detection,identification and removal of land-mines. It seeks to help those people who have been affected by land-mines. By rehabilitating the land and ensuring that the the communities affected have sustainable futures.
We have launched the Sole of Africa campaign to help communities affected by land-mine and unexploded ordnance (UXO) You can help us by joining the Sole of Africa campaign.
There are over 100 million land mines buried beneath the surface of this Earth. Someone steps on a mine every 19 minutes, usually women and children. Whole communities live in constant fear and terror. We can stop this with new technology, developed by the British Ministry of Defence and licensed to Mineseeker. It detects all mines in an instant. The system was tested and deployed in Kosovo and featured in the BBC documentary Mineseekers which you may have seen (a copy is available if required.) It represents a major man made disaster, bigger than the Tsunami and Pakistan earthquake combined. The point is we can fix this problem quickly.
The Mineseeker Foundation is a non-profit organisation, allied with the British Ministry of Defence and endorsed by the United Nations. Together, these powers have developed and tested a breakthrough technology that will revolutionize the international quest to rid the world of land-mines. Mineseeker will work to detect and map land-mines utilizing airships and the foremost ground-penetrating radar system. The system is sponsored by Virgin Atlantic and the British Ministry of Defence and has been successfully tested in Kosovo.
In support of its mine detection programme, Mineseeker has drawn up an Empowerment Blueprint. This programme will be initiated through agricultural sustainability, and will be implemented first in Mozambique. Complimenting foundations, businesses and humanity leaders are now working together to achieve these aims, and a preliminary schedule of events and action for 2009/10 has been arranged.
