Sign up to create a world free of landmines!

Landmines, bombs, and other explosive hazards continue to claim thousands of innocent lives across more than 60 countries. In Ukraine, Laos, Syria, Colombia, Yemen and beyond, families are waiting to return home and farm their land, but explosive remnants of war block their path. Schools encircled by landmines remain closed as children wait day after day to restart their education.
Together, we can put an end to these senseless deaths and allow communities to thrive. HALO's demining work transforms former battlefields into farms, homes, and hospitals, and allows children to safely attend school.
Please contact your Members of Congress and urge them to support global demining programs. With your help, we can create a mine-free world.
As your constituent, and a supporter of The HALO Trust, I want to urge you to support global landmine removal programs in this year's Congressional budget and make demining a top priority.
State Department demining programs remove explosive devices that threaten civilians and U.S. servicemembers in 40+ countries. Demining programs support national security, reduce hunger by making land safe to farm, allow displaced people to return home, and ensure the U.S. fulfills its commitment to addressing its own legacy contamination in southeast Asia and beyond.
More resources are needed to ensure demining programs can reach communities in need in Nagorno Karabakh, Ukraine, Libya, Ethiopia, Iraq, and beyond.
Please support increased resources for global landmine removal programs and put your voice behind this important cause.
Your leadership is needed now more than ever. Thank you for your support!
