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 8,500 people in Quang Tri; 31% of them were children.

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

748,000 explosive items destroyed

600 villages surveyed

21 million square meters of land cleared

9,785 emergency calls answered

ZERO deaths and injuries from unexploded ordinance since 2018

Data from Quang Tri Mine Action Center as of May 14, 2021

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