The Polus Center has been working to improve the lives of Colombian civilians with disabilities, especially those who have been injured by landmines through various programs since 2008.
Helping People Around The World
The Polus Center partners with the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (PM/WRA) and Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), and private foundations to address the devastating impact of landmines and other explosive remnants of war on people in areas of conflict around the world. Known for its holistic, person-centered approach to community-based rehabilitation services, the Polus Center has a long history of providing physical and psychological rehabilitation services and creating social and economic opportunities for victims of conflict in Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tajikistan, Iraq, and Jordan.
The Polus Center is working in partnership with the United States Government and other partners to provide a victim assistance program that improves human security and the socio-economic conditions of landmine survivors and victims of conflict in the Lake Kivu region.
