After a five-decade-long civil war in Colombia, leftover landmines still dot the rural mountainsides. In the coffeelands, it is common for these landmines to go off and claim the lives or limbs of farmers and their families. In fact, Colombia is the country with the second-highest number of annual landmine causalties, trailing only Afghanistan. The majority of landmine victims end up in need of prosthetic limbs and rehabilitation, often unable to continue their work. We have co-founded Coffeelands Landmine Trust to provide job training and rehabilitation for landmine victims in Colombia's coffeelands.
