This exhibit will introduce the scourge and consequences of landmined countries, and educate the public as to how an organization like Roots of Peace can remove, rebuild and reimagine the land for cultivation of indigenous agriculture.

Roots of Peace will open an extraordinary exhibit at the Leonardo Museum, debuting in the Human Rights Gallery, August 25th, 2019, and will run through December 2019. Introducing the patrons to the scourge of landmines and the devastation caused by  60 million leftover ordinance from war,  these cancers  wreak havoc on the most marginalized populations, mostly small shareholder farmers. Over 100,000 individuals, many of them children, have been victims of landmine explosions since the end of the war in Vietnem in April 1975. The exhibit will describe in detail through many mediums the historical background of of landmines, and how Roots of Peace partners with several organizations for the painstaking removal of them. The founder of Roots of Peace, Ms. Heidi Kuhn began this work in 1997, after the untimely death of Princess Diana, who brought this issue to the global forefront. For 22 years Roots of Peace has not only worked to remove the scourge of landmines and to relieve much suffering, but rebuilds and assists small shareholder farmers to cultivate beautiful orchards and vines for the sustainable best practices in farming. Learn how one organization has made a difference in tens of thousands of families lives, and how you can be inspired to do the work of sustainable peace in your own sphere of influence.
