A Brighter Future

Dear HALO Supporters, 

20 year old Leas Nok was recently recruited and trained as a HALO deminer in Cambodia. Her mother died when she was young, while her father lost his leg to a landmine during the conflict of the early 1990s. Leas Nok is the oldest child in her family and is also the sole breadwinner. Such is her father’s joy in his daughter having secured employment with HALO that every day he brings his daughter’s lunch out to the minefield where she is working. 

This is exactly the brighter future your donations help make possible.  Thank you for being a part of the change.  

All your donations are tax-deductable. 96.2% of HALO’s global income goes directly to field operations. 

Many thanks.
