HeroRats Save Lives

This April 18, 2015 New York Times op-ed by Nicholas Kristof tells the story of Apopo’s HeroRat program. By sniffing out landmines and other unexploded ordnance in former war zones, clearance of these areas can be done more swiftly, and more safely. HeroRats save lives. VFP Chapter 72 has been the proud sponsor of a HeroRat for several years now, to the tune of $10 a month (or less). Currently we support a rat known as “Blossom.”
