For the past 35 years, HI has been working hard to change the world. One of our proudest moments? In 1997, our efforts to ban #landmines led us to the signing of the #OttawaTreaty & to the @nobelprize_org stage. #nobelprize #landminefree2025 #banlandmines

Take a trip down memory lane! HI is a 35-year-old well-oiled organization. We've been there, done that. See for yourself! Take a minute and check out some of our old campaigns that date back to the early 90s! #TBT

When we say our teams go the extra mile, we truly mean it. Here, HI #Colombia #demining teams work hard to clear one of the world's most densely mined countries. Thanks to support from the @statedpt and the work of these dedicated #deminers, #Colombians can live in safety. #MineAction #LandmineFree2025β €
