The HALO Trust

Last updated: 23/04/2014

Description

The HALO Trust is a non-political, non-religious NGO, registered in Britain as a charity (no. 1001813 and SCO 37870) and in the United States as a 50l (c) (3) Not-for-Profit organisation. 

HALO specialises in the removal of the debris of war.  HALO has almost 8,000 mineclearers in 16 countries and territories, with on-going surveys into new regions.  Our innovative training of local management and introduction of new equipment allows us to continue expansion as funding becomes available.  By September 2013, twenty-five years after founding HALO, we have reached some important milestones that include:

·       Over 1.4 million landmines destroyed

·       Over 11 million items of larger calibre ordnance destroyed

·       Over 208,000 cluster munitions destroyed

·       Over 53 million bullets destroyed

·       Over 3,400 heavy weapon systems immobilized 

·       Over 165,000 assault rifles destroyed

·       Over 10,423 minefields cleared

·       33,460 hectares (82,682 acres) made safe from landmines

·       144,616 hectares (357,353 acres) made safe from unexploded and abandoned ordnance

·       14,491 kilometres (9,004 miles) of roads cleared

These statistics, which may appear bland, are a testament to the dedication of our staff conducting one of the most inherently dangerous jobs on earth, and the generosity of our donors who understand that our work directly saves lives, and allows a return to normal rural livelihoods in some of the poorest countries in the world.

We have a simple mission statement – “getting mines out of the ground, now”.
