Clear 2,200 Square Feet of Landmines in Cambodia

FUNDED November 16 2018 – Thank You!

“I don’t feel scared about playing at school anymore.”
–Ti, a 13 year old student from Trapeang Tav School in Northwest Cambodia, shares what it means to have landmines removed from his school and playground. HALO cleared 30 landmines and 4 explosive items from Trapeang Tav school.

 

Help clear the remaining landmines in Cambodia so that families can farm and raise their children, like Ti, safely.

Cambodia is one of the countries most heavily–impacted by landmines, with over 64,000 casualties recorded since 1979, including over 25,000 amputees — the highest ratio per capita in the world. Landmine contamination resulted from extensive mine–laying during nearly two decades of fighting that began with Vietnam’s ousting of the Khmer Rouge in 1979, and continued until their final demise in 1998.

Landmines prevent development by hindering access to land, water sources, roads, and health services, and imposing financial and emotional hardship on families needing to care for a landmine survivor. More than 80% of the total population live in rural areas, in communities dependent on agriculture — mostly growing rice, cassava, and maize.

HALO Trust was the first organization to respond to Cambodia’s landmine problem in 1991, and continues in its pursuit of eliminating all landmines today.

Not only has HALO Trust helped make Cambodia safer by removing 500,000 of the landmines, they also employ over 1,000 local staff working in six provinces to demine fields. Once these fields are demined, they become usable for the large number of people who use land for agriculture in this region.

Thanks to donations like yours 50% of Cambodia’s minefields have now been cleared, which has reduced casualty numbers, but landmines still injure and kill innocent people every day, and are a major impediment to the social and economic development of the country.

You can help change that. Your generous clicks today will save and improve lives through the removal of landmines in Northwest Cambodia.

Transport 11 Women to and from Breast Cancer Treatment: Completed February 6, 2019

44,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in Louisiana. While treatment is available, some women have trouble getting the care they need to stay alive. Many rural and urban cancer patients have very limited resources, and money for transportation is often beyond their budget ‐ even when that transportation is to a potentially life‐saving treatment appointment. This results in missed appointments, disease progression, and premature death. Please click today to help a woman with breast cancer access her treatment.
