The Tragedy of Landmines

The President of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS), Dr. Pierce Scranton, described his organization’s efforts to surgically repair damage brought on by unexploded landmines, particularly in Vietnam. Each year, 28,000 people in the world are killed or maimed by landmines, a fact that has not gone unnoticed in the ranks of Rotary International. Last fall, Rotary and the U.S. State Department convened a conference dedicated to “Ending the Tragedy of Landmines,” a meeting that attracted 250 attendees and representatives from 22 nations.

Dr. Scranton gave a first-hand account of how the AOFAS and its newly created Outreach and Education Fund has partnered with corporate America to send teams of surgeons overseas to help the populations struck by the landmine tragedy. Dr. Scranton said the Society has 1,800 surgeon members and, together with American corporations, over $3 million has been raised during the past 18 months. MORE
