The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) and the Mine Dog Detection Centre (MDDC) will host the Mine Awareness Night to Make a Difference (MANMADE) Dinner to help solve a man-made problem.  With strong support from the American Chamber of Commerce in Bosnia Herzegovina and the United States Embassy, the dinner will celebrate progress in freeing BiH of the humanitarian dangers & destabilizing effects of landmines, while highlighting the challenges that remain.  This enjoyable and inspirational evening will honor exceptional individuals for their extraordinary efforts to improve the lives of all living in BiH.  Leaders of business, government and industry, in BiH and abroad, will share in the activities.
