As COVID spread across the world our everyday life was transformed. Airports shut down, healthcare systems fractured and entire countries went into lockdown. In the communities where HALO works, COVID-19 presented a terrifying new threat to families already struggling to survive.
But thanks to your support, we were able to mobilise our resources to help protect the vulnerable. Your generosity has supported over one million people, across fifteen countries. You have provided ambulances to transport the sick, ensured vital medical supplies reach remote villages, delivered hygiene kits to refugee camps and food supplies to hungry families.
We were overwhelmed by your response to our emergency appeal, which raised more than $180,000. Thank you to all the individual donors, foundations, corporate partners and governments who supported our appeal and emergency relief work during these challenging times.
Although our landmine clearance teams are now all back at work, we will continue to support the COVID-19 response and ensure those in need are not left to fight the pandemic alone.
