- Ti, a 13 year old student from Trapeang Tav School in Northwest Cambodia shares what it means to have landmines removed from his school and playground.
Generous contributions from supporters like you enable HALO to take on projects such as the clearance of Trapeang Tav School. This year alone, HALO has cleared upwards of 10,000 landmines and explosive items, making safe roughly 3,000 acres of land. This includes the 30 landmines and 4 explosive items removed from Ti's school
Thank you for your kind and generous support that makes stories like these possible. Your contributions not only save lives but also restore livelihoods. In the words of a beneficiary in Cambodia, "Since HALO's clearance has finished there have been many benefits. We have road access, help from NGO's, I have been given rice seed and water jars. I can also get more land. I am very happy here. I am not afraid at all as there are no more mines to be destroyed where I live." - Touch Rin from Ou Savy village, Otdar Meanchey Province.
Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and healthy New Year.
