Mine Clearance

Since 2017

Ensure Safe Access to Agricultural Land

The Izmirlian Foundation supports HALO Trust international (an international NGO) via provision of co-funding to accomplish the clearance of three minefields. The project aims to contribute to the elimination of casualties as a result of mine explosions, to ensure safe access to agricultural land, grazing, wood collecting, haymaking and foraging for the local population. The total land area to be cleaned is estimated 51,726m2, where twenty-four national staff members, among them several women, are employed during the active phase duration of the remediation project.
