This global event aims to raise awareness and raise funds for the international land mine crisis. Every year approximately 18,000 people are killed or maimed by land mines. According to UNICEF, 30 to 40 percent of these victims are children. It is estimated that there are currently 70 million active land mines buried in more than 80 countries.
"A Night of a Thousand Dinners" is an international initiative coordinated by the Canadian Landline Foundation and the United Nations Association of the USA to raise funds for Adopt-A-Minefield and a coalition of other organizations that address the different aspects of land mines from mine clearance to survivor assistance and advocacy work.
