HALO TRUST, thehalotrust, a mine-clearing charity based in Scotland, has resumed its work in Afghanistan. 1400 local Afghan employees are deploying to five provinces, to continue disposing of live shells, grenades, and IED’s. Their work is heroic, as they risk their lives to save the lives and limbs of Afghans.
During my travels in Afghanistan, I spent a lot of time following the workers from HALO TRUST. Some deminers were attacked and killed even though they were trying to make the land safe.
