The HALO Trust

The HALO Trust clears landmines and unexploded ordnance from war-torn communities so that some of the world's most vulnerable people can plant their crops, rebuild their homes and raise their families in safety. HALO is the world's oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization. Our mission, "Getting mines out of the ground, now," has guided our humanitarian operations around the globe since 1988. We foster local management, providing employment in areas with little opportunity.

Programs

The HALO Trust employs 8,000 local staff, with mineclearance operations in ten countries and ongoing surveys into other mine-affected regions. We currently work in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Angola, Mozambique, Somaliland, Abkhazia/Georgia, Kosovo, Nagorno Karabakh and Colombia. We have destroyed 12.2 million landmines and other explosive items. In addition to mineclearance, HALO's Weapons & Ammunition Disposal teams have disposed of over 24,000 tons of ammunition and 130,000 rifles.
