The U.S. Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) will donate 30 more mine detection dogs (MDDs) to Azerbaijan, the U.S. embassy in Azerbaijan has reported on its social media accounts.

“To date, MLI is proud to have been able to provide 40 lifesaving MDDs. With their handlers, they have searched and returned over 30 million sq meters of formerly contaminated land. In the next 1.5 years, MLI will provide an additional 30 MDDS to assist ANAMA [Mine Action Agency] in its demining efforts,” the report reads.
