RENEW's 20 Years
of Impact

To make the most bombed place on earth safe again.

Since the war’s end in 1975, wartime bombs have killed or injured over 105,000 people in Vietnam; a third of them were children.

Since 2001, RENEW and its NGO partners have produced real results for Quang Tri:

750,000 explosive items destroyed
But that’s less than half of what is estimated to remain.

21 million square meters of land cleared
We prioritize known battlefields. Recent floods revealed more UXO.

9,785 emergency calls answered
We expect calls for emergency help to increase.

166,141 children educated about dangers of UXO
Every year a new group of children counts on us.

Data from Quang Tri Mine Action Center as of 3Q 2021


But, the job to eliminate the threat of wartime bombs is far from done.
Only with your help can we make Vietnam safe.

RENEW fields Vietnam's only all-women bomb clearance team.


Help RENEW launch a new all-women emergency response team.
You can donate here.

Your generosity has enabled us to launch this team in October, BUT we still need help to reach our goal of $150,000 to keep it in the field for the next two years [while we arrange permanent funding]. Your contribution will be matched up to $75,000 thanks to a few generous donors

You can put them to work saving lives. Read why we need this team.
