Halo Trust Humanitarian Mine Action in Eastern Ukraine

Since 2014, a deep political crisis in Ukraine resulted in a major armed conflict in the east of the country, which led to more than 10’000 victims, massive displacement and heavy destruction of infrastructures and private properties. Since February 2015 Swiss Humanitarian Aid (SHA) has implemented six humanitarian transports of water treatment materials and medical supplies to the Donetsk region for the affected population on both sides of the “contact line”. As according to all partners mine action in vast parts of eastern Ukaine is urgently needed, Switzerland supported in 2016 first successful demining assessments through HALO Trust.
