helping people

around the world 

The Polus Center has partnered with the U.S. Department of State Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (PM/WRA) and private foundations to address the devastating impact of landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERWs) on victims of conflict around the world for almost 20 years. Known for our holistic approach to community-based rehabilitation services, we have a lengthy history of providing physical rehabilitation and creating social and economic opportunities for victims of landmines and ERW in Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, Colombia, Tajikistan, Iraq and Jordan.

Colombia

Since 2008 we have been working to develop unique partnerships with the coffee industry to address victim assistance for coffee-growing communities in Colombia.

Tajikistan

The Polus Center conducted its second visit to Tajikistan’s National Mine Action Center to support Victim Assistance services.

Jordan

Since 2010, the Polus Center has been providing rehabilitation services to war wounded victims of conflict in Jordan.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

The recent revival of coffee has brought hope, peace, and the promise for a better future for the Congolese people living in the Lake Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of  Congo . Partnering with the Department of State PM/WRA and Eastern Congo Initiative, the Polus Center and it's partners will address four main areas of mine action over a 4-year period: Mine Risk Education, Victim Assistance, Prosthetic Rehabilitation, and Vocational Training.
