Kali Leads The Way
Kali has an important job to do. She is a humanitarian mine detection dog. It’s her job to find dangerous land mines that lay hidden in the ground.
Warring armies planted millions of the small explosives in Kali’s homeland of Cambodia. Now, farmers can’t safely farm their land. They fear that their plows might accidentally hit one of the hidden bombs. Children can’t play in their backyard fields or forests either. If they step on a land mine it might explode, and they will be badly injured.
When a young boy becomes sick, Kali must prove that she has the qualities of a top mine detection dog and carefully lead the boy, his father, and her handler over a treacherous mountain path to the nearest hospital in Kampot City.
