    Mali Phonpadith interviews Patricia Loria of MAG America about her passions and what led her to support MAG's global mission. Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an international organization that saves lives and builds futures through the removal and destruction of landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO), and other weapons remaining after conflict. Since 1989, MAG has worked in over 35 countries and was co-laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. MAG’s leading priority is to protect the lives and well being of the most vulnerable individuals in contaminated areas by providing risk education and removing deadly weapons. Equally important, we focus on development by clearing land in affected areas to open access to agriculture, water, schools, hospitals, and roads. By listening to and collaborating with local communities, MAG concentrates on clearing areas that have the largest humanitarian impact, enabling local populations to propel themselves to economic growth. MAG’s goal is to build capacity within the country by creating local leaders who will be the future of humanitarian mine action. MAG America is a 501(c)3 organization that raises funds and awareness for MAG’s life-saving work form the American community, which includes individuals, corporations, foundations and government donors. http://magamerica.org http://maicreative.com/teawithmali Facebook.com/MaliPhonpadith Twitter.com/MaliPhonpadith Linkedin.com/MaliPhonpadith
