Millions of mines blighting thousands of urban and rural
communities lie scattered across five continents.
Antarctica, with no indigenous population, remains one of the
few major land masses untouched by this modern day scourge.
The HALO Trust specialises in the removal of mines
and unexploded ordnance from post-conflict areas.
Their work is the first vital step to allowing hundreds of
thousands of dispossessed refugees to return to their homes,
villages and farmlands to re-establish a normal way of life.
Since 1988, The HALO Trust, the largest demining charity in the world,
has cleared over one and a half million items of ordnance in 15 countries.
