Landmine Struggle Center (LSC)

Organization Information

Organization Name:
Landmine Struggle Center (LSC)

Organization Type:
NGO/INGO

Mission Statement:
The LSC is an NGO that formed because the government lacked organizations that worked with landmines in the areas of mine awareness, mine clearance and victim assistance. The LSC was formed for the following reasons: -Landmines are obstacles in the economic development in the north and east coast of Egypt due to the loss of agricultural land. -In the last 20 years, Egypt has lost 3,200 people due to AP mines and 4,723 people have been handicapped. -No clear, accurate maps are available for landmine removal, and natural forces have caused the removal of known mines to be difficult, sometimes impossible. -No specialized first aid center has been formed to help landmine victims. -Vocational training programs for victims are not available. -No essential information about landmines is provided to inhabitants of mine-infested areas. -No legal mechanism for helping the victims to receive legal rights has been established. -Egypt is not in any international programs that aid countries suffering from the problem.
