Born in January 1968. Heather Mills is an activist charity campaigner and United Nations Association Goodwill Ambassador. A no nonsense straight talker, Heather speaks from the heart and is not afraid to tell it like it is. She has campaigned for over 14 years to raise funds and awareness to rid the world of landmines and is a founding Patron of the charity No More Landmines in the UK.
Heather's charity work as Patron and as an Ambassador for the global campaign has helped raise over $18.5 million to date, funding clearance of over 21 million square metres of mine filled land and benefiting more than 400,000 people. No More Landmines is now the largest funder of landmine clearance in the world and has funded over 300 minefield clearance and survivor assistance projects. Her efforts and determination in this field took on an ironic significance when in August 1993 her life changed for ever when she was involved in a road accident with a police motorcycle and suffered numerous injuries including crushed ribs, a punctured lung, multiple fractures of the pelvis and the loss of her left leg below the knee.
Just one year after this accident, Heather arranged for the first convoy of artificial limbs to be sent to Croatia. Since then over 400,000 amputees and survivors of landmine explosions around the world have been helped.
