2,000+ landmines cleared (from just one village)
The Chan family can safely farm post-clearance.
Landmines use to be a constant danger for the villagers of Banteay Ti Muoy.
Thanks to our generous donors, HALO has now cleared over 2,000 landmines in the village and 265 items of UXO have been found and destroyed.
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.
Families, like the Chan's (pictured), can farm their land and let their children play safely thanks to this clearance. We found that family income rose by an average of $2,541 per year from crops grown on the cleared land.
Thanks for being a part of this transformation.
PS We wish our friends, Loung Ung and Angelina Jolie, all the best as their film First They Killed My Father launches globally this week on Netflix. Our staff was honored to attend the Cambodian premiere in February (pictured).
