Partnerships with other Organizations
In the course of our work, we have partnerships with many organizations. Each organization is vital to the work we do in Cambodia, without them we would not be nearly as successful as we have been.
Canadian Landmine Foundation
Canadian Landmine Foundation (CLMF) has been a resource for us to apply for grants in regards to explosive weapons removal. Most recently, as of February 2017, we received a grant which will help train and put into the field a 4th Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team in place for CSHD. They have been working on removing explosive weapons through various methods of funding other projects and organizations since 1999.
Danish Demining Group
Danish Demining Group (DDG) is a Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction Unit within the Danish Refugee Council. They have worked in the field of weapons removal and abatement for the last 20 years, and as such their expertise in the field is vital to helping us achieve our mission here in Cambodia. DDG has helped train CSHD deminers and EOD teams in Unexploded Ordnance and Landmine removal, as well as, providing a few individuals from each of our EOD teams with emergency paramedic training.
The Giant Puppet Project
The students at the Landmine Museum Relief Center have been participating in the Giant Puppet Project’s Annual Parade for 11 of the last 12 years. We are very happy to be in partnership with this organization as every year this project brings so much fun and joy to the students at the Relief Center. GPP is a Cambodian children’s community arts project that provides a creative platform for disadvantaged children to foster and promote confidence and self expression through art. Additionally, The Giant Puppet Parade fosters an important sense of community building and establishes teamwork among artists, children and the community of Siem Reap.
m&e is a jewelry company started by two individuals who visited us a few years ago. Most of their proceeds are donated to LMRF to help provide building materials and school supplies for RSVP. They design and sell handmade bracelets in their effort to help RSVP.
U.S. State Department Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement
The Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (WRA) has provided LMRF with Grants varying in size since our inception. They have been vital in helping us progress in removing landmines from Cambodia. Additionally, they are one of the largest funders in the world in weapons removal and have been providing funds to organizations since 1993.
Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team
The Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team is made up of a group of Australian Veterans that served during the Vietnam War. They have been a huge supporter of CSHD by helping pay for many of our training seminars. They have been working with us since 2007, when they were founded, in helping remove landmines and UXOs from Cambodia.
World Without Mines
World Without Mines is a Swiss organization which provides funds for demining projects throughout the world. They have been working with us since 2016 when CSHD trained a 3rd EOD team. Since then, they have provided funds that allows us to put the 3rd EOD team into the field every month.
