HALO in Artsakh

Description

On the 27 September, the worst fighting in decades erupted over Nagorno Karabakh. The recent fighting began as helicopter, drone and tank clashes on the line of contact and has escalated with rocket and artillery attacks.

Families have been forced to abandon their homes and flee to bomb shelters.

Since 2001, HALO has been the only international organization working to protect the people of  Artsakh from explosives. They are currently on the ground, providing families that have been forced to flee to shelters with aid and supplies.

Their teams have also taken to the streets to mark and isolate cluster bombs and other explosives so they can be cleared. And as families remain threatened by scattered unexploded items, they are going to shelters and homes, alerting people with how to avoid these hazards.

The threat posed to civilians remains dire and HALO needs support now more than ever. Every donation towards the program in Artsakh will be matched by an anonymous donor.

The Need

The threat posed to civilians remains dire and we need your support now more than ever to provide immediate humanitarian assistance to people in bunkers in urban areas in Artsakh, along with alerting people to the hazards of unexploded cluster bombs and other explosives littering their communities.

Short Term Impact

In the short term, HALO staff in Armenia and Artsakh will coordinate immediate humanitarian relief for people in bunkers including food, medicine and other needed supplies. In addition they will work to provide important education on how to avoid unexploded ordinances.

Long Term Impact

As people took refuge in Stepanakert during the war, Halo continued to provide humanitarian assistance to those who were sheltering in place.  Following the ceasefire, Halo began the monumental task of clearing unexploded munitions in Artsakh.
