Mgm Stiftung Menschen Gegen Minen - People Against Landmines Charity Profile
MgM, the foundation of ‘People against Landmines’ was founded on January 16th 1996 in Germany.
The goal was to establish a humanitarian mine clearance organization which would offer its services to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) dedicated to re-establishing the infrastructure of dangerous regions in post war scenarios.
Hendrik Ehlers and Hans Georg Kruessen founded MgM together with others in 1996. Today they are Managing Directors and active Managers of all demining operations at the same time.
Hendrik Ehlers and Hans-Georg Kruessen have been working since 1992 in the field of humanitarian mine clearance and the destruction of dangerous ammunition in Southern Africa. They posses a wealth of practical experience through operations management, mined area survey, demining and the destruction of explosives (EOD). PHILOSOPHY
Our safety guides are strict, thoroughly documented and internationally recognized. Latest technologies and security measures guarantee the highest degree of safety for our deminers and for the population returning to areas we have cleared.
It is our goal, as far as is humanly possible, to clear mined areas of all mines and other dangerous residue of war. Internal and external quality controls are built into the set procedures of all our operations, our documentation and liability reports.
All information about MgM and its projects are published on multimedia CD-Roms and on the Internet. Our international Internet forum is a free of charge service for all who are involved in the world wide task of demining. If you would like to subscribe to this forum, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the organisation that you work for and your email address.
All innovations and technologies are published by MgM. We expressively invite all mine clearance organizations to copy these freely. We purposely do not restrict this offer through copyrights or patents.
