The HALO Trust is a non-political, non-religious NGO, registered in Britain as a charity. HALO specialises in the removal of the hazardous debris of war.
How much more work is there to do? In areas such as northern Mozambique and Abkhazia we have finished – with every single village declaring that they are free from landmines. In other countries we still have five more years of work, and in countries such as Afghanistan our work plan extends to 2020.
However, HALO is not distracted by involvement in campaigns and conferences, and we have a simple mission statement - “getting mines out of the ground, now”. With more deminers and more equipment, we shall shorten the timeframe that villagers are impacted by landmines.
HALO’s operations are grouped under Central Asia, South East Asia, Horn of Africa, Southern Africa and the Caucasus & Balkans – managed from a small office in South West Scotland. Our innovative training of local management and introduction of new equipment allows us to continue expansion as funding becomes available.
