To clear the 110 million active landmines in place using current technologies would cost an estimated $30 billion and take over 1,000 years. We’re helping to Find A Better Way.
Welcome to Find A Better Way
Find A Better Way was founded in 2011 by Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton. While visiting a minefield in Cambodia, Sir Bobby saw first-hand the humanitarian damage which landmines cause in war torn areas both past and present.
The visit moved him to set up Find A Better Way as he felt that, with modern technological advances, there had to be a more efficient way of negating the effects of mines and improve safety and security for indigenous populace whose lives are blighted by them.
Find A Better Way is a major funding body for vital, groundbreaking technological research at several leading UK universities. We are committed to finding innovative, technology- led solutions, which will clear landmines and save millions of lives. We have teamed up with two leading universities to create RESOLVE: Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Victims of Landmine Explosions. This represents a world first as we pioneer research with the sole aim of engineering biological replacement limbs for landmine victims, created from the individual’s own cells.
Our charity also works to raise funds to help education projects in areas scarred by landmines and to aid innovative humanitarian projects designed to help victims recover from their injuries and rebuild their lives.
Find A Better Way need your support to fulfill these goals. You can help Find A Better Way to save lives and work to help the millions of people living with the threat of landmines around the world by simply donating to our cause.
Alternatively, we’d like you to consider making Find A Better Way a beneficiary if you are completing a sponsored event such as the London Marathon, Great North Run or Manchester 10k.
