Children collect mushrooms on HALO cleared ground
Landmines were a constant danger for the villagers of Banteay Ti Muoy in Northwest Cambodia. Now the people who live there, like the children pictured here, can safely walk, farm and play in safety.
HALO has now cleared the 37 high priority minefields in Banteay Ti Muoy village with the help of funding generously donated by YOU via GlobalGiving. Your support enhanced contributions from our international donors to enable clearance of this village.
2,058 Anti-Personnel mines, 67 Anti-Tank mines and 265 items of UXO found and destroyed
302 acres of land cleared and returned to the community
This clearance has directly benefitted a total of 109 families (523 people) who live on, own or farm this land and indirectly benefited 429 families (3,478 people) who live in the village
92% of the land cleared has been used for agriculture/cultivation
Family income rose by an average of $2,541 per year from crops grown on the cleared land
This has helped the villagers of Banteay Ti Muoy enjoy a life of safety and economic security for generations to come.
While we have reached this milestone, our lifesaving work in Cambodia and around the world continues. We hope you will continue to stay in touch by supporting future GG projects, following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and sign up for our newsletter - www.halotrust.org - full of stories and news from the field.
