About Project RENEW
Project RENEW was founded in August 2001 by the government of Quang Tri Province and international NGOs as an effort to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by cluster bombs and other munitions remaining in Quang Tri Province in central Vietnam, since the war ended in 1975.
Project RENEW’s priority is cleaning up cluster munitions and other ERW that litter the countryside, farms and fields, and neighborhoods in villages and towns of the province. Over 72 million square meters of land have been mapped out as confirmed hazardous areas that need full clearance. Since 2007, their teams have safely removed and destroyed more than 52,000 pieces of dangerous ordnance.
More information about Project RENEW, their mission and initiatives can be found at their website.
