About Me:
Over the years, I haven't become a coffee fanatic. But even though I only drink a cup of coffee a couple times a week, I was interested in getting involved with the Coffeelands Landmine Victims Trust.
About My Company:
Much of coffee lands are in areas of ongoing conflict or previous warring zones. Because of this, landmines pervade much of the coffee farming land in areas like Latin America. Many times, when coffee farmers are cultivating land or collecting coffee beans, they accidentally trigger hidden landmines. The explosions are obviously noxious, leaving many of the victims amputated. The CLVT works to generate funds, which are in turn loaned to these victims. The loans help them to support their families, bounce back from injuries, create new businesses and return to normalcy.

For their noble work, I have begun to work closely with the Coffeelands Landmine Victims Trust. Please visit the website for more information about how coffee drinkers and sellers can help.
