Mission: The HALO Trust is the world's oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization. Started in 1988 our mission is "Getting mines out of the ground, for good".
Results: HALO has destroyed over 1.5 million landmines and cleared over 10,800 minefields to enable families to rebuild their lives after a conflict. Our gratitude to our donors cannot be overstated. Where HALO has cleared minefields and battlefields, farmers are now planting their crops, homes and roads are being rebuilt, and children walk to school, secure in the knowledge that their next step will be a safe one.
Target demographics: some of the world's most vulnerable people in war-torn countries.
Geographic areas served: We currently work in Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Colombia, Georgia, Ivory Coast, Kosovo, Laos, Mozambique, Nagorno Karabakh, Somaliland, Sri Lanka, the West Bank and Zimbabwe.
Programs: landmine and UXO removal and weapons and ammunition destruction.
