Our activities

FSD’s original mandate was mine action, but over the years its projects have evolved to include environmental clearance and peace support to meet the most pressing needs.

FSD's activities are all aimed at supporting people affected by conflict and providing hope to the ones in need (Ukraine, 2021)
