On 3rd May 2019 we celebrated BP’s $1.2 million grant to HALO’s landmine clearance in Angola at a signing ceremony in the capital, Luanda.
HALO has been working in Angola for almost 25 years, removing landmines, saving lives and providing jobs for local people—clearing over 860 minefields and destroying 97,000 landmines.
In 2017 we launched our 100 Women in Demining project in Angola, empowering Angolan women by training and employing them to remove the landmines that threaten their communities.

Southern Africa is projected to be one of one of the most vulnerable regions to the impacts of climate change. Floods and cyclones affected several countries and more than 400,000 people across the region were affected in 2018. The estimated population in the sub region is over 340 million. With 60 per cent of the population living in urban areas, this rise in urbanization means more youth are living in towns where employment opportunities are limited leading to increased crime and other socio – economic development challenges.
