Cindy McCain visits Kosovo

Mrs McCain took 4 days out from her husband, Senator John McCain’s, Presidential campaign tour to visit HALO in Kosovo during March.

She has previously visited HALO’s humanitarian clearance operations in Angola, Sri Lanka, Mozambique and Cambodia.

During the visit to Kosovo she reviewed minefields and cluster bomb strikes that HALO will clear over the next few years. She also met with the communities that these minefields and cluster strikes still impact.

Mrs McCain concluded her visit by meeting with Kosovo’s President and Prime Minister. Both fully endorsed HALO’s resumption of mines and cluster bomb clearance in Kosovo.
