German donation for AMCO DCA activities in Albania

01.04.2008
Federal Republic of Germany has again supported the activities of the International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victim Assistance (ITF). The donation agreement was signed today at the Embassy of FR Germany in Ljubljana, by Ambassador dr. Hans–Joachim Goetz and ITF Director Mr. Goran Ga?nik. The donation in the amount of EUR 339.209,59 is earmarked for demining activities in Albania.

Germany is one of the most regular donor countries and has contributed on a yearly basis to ITF ever since ITF's inception in 1998. Donations from Germany to ITF now amount to over 17 million EUR. Donations were earmarked for demining activities in South East Europe, namely in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Albania.

Ongoing implementation of demining strategy in Albania, since year 2000, remains one of the crucial conditions for reconstruction and socio-economic development of Northern Albania. The most recent donation from Germany is intended for a successful continuation of 2008 demining season, which is being carried out by the Albanian Mine Clearance Organization and aided by the international NGO Danish Church Aid (AMCO/DCA).

Germany remains one of the most important donor countries to the ITF and shall remain dedicated to resolving the problem of people that have been affected by mines.
