PeaceTrees Vietnam founder, Jerilyn Brusseau, joins us to talk about this remarkable program that has removed over 110,000 landmines, cluster bombs, mortar shells and grenades from over 2,810 acres of land since their founding in 1995.

PeaceTrees Vietnam works to address the lasting impacts of war through fostering citizen diplomacy and building people-to-people ties, safely removing landmines and planting trees in their stead, returning land to productive use, and supporting education and economic development to ensure a prosperous and sustainable future for communities impacted by war. PeaceTrees’ work is rooted in mutual trust and collaboration, fostered through the support and partnership of local leadership, and an enduring commitment to building friendship and understanding between Vietnamese and American citizens.
