Work of HALO
Because of the upcoming sections of my journey which will lead me from Battambang to Banteay Meanchey and Otdar Mencheay provinces, the most heavily mined parts of Cambodia still to this very day, I like to use the opportunity to alert the readers to the work of HALO, a de-mining organization also doing work in Cambodia. http://www.halousa.org/where-we-work/cambodia
Please consider donating to support their work!
Hundreds of Cambodians are still killed or injured each year from landmines which are left in the ground from fighting that ended decades ago. The HALO Trust clears landmines and unexploded ordnance from war-torn countries so that some of the world’s most vulnerable people can plant their crops, rebuild their homes and raise their families in safety. In Cambodia, one of the most mined countries in the world, HALO’s trained staff use metal detectors and heavy machinery to locate and destroy landmines. They employ 1,000 Cambodian men and women who work hard to make their country safe while earning a living wage.
