The Lachin corridor, the thin strip of land which connects Armenia to Nagorno-Karabakh (NK), is riddled with landmines. The mines, remnants of the bloody conflict between Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan, pose a constant threat to the residents. Since 1995, there have been 370 civilian accidents, one of the highest per capita rates in the world. One third of those accidents have involved children. Fearing for their safety, much the local population have left their homes behind in search of a more secure place to live. Without the risk of landmines they will be able to farm much more of their land, allow their animals to graze freely and work towards the economic development of their respective communities. 

ONEArmenia is partnering with The HALO Trust (HALO) to demine one major minefield that covers 31,839m² of land located 2.5 kilometers from Meghvadzor village. Due to this region’s disputed status, finding funding for mine clearance is extremely difficult. Therefore it is up to individuals to contribute towards this effort.

Due to this region’s disputed status, finding funding for mine clearance is extremely difficult. Therefore it is up to individuals to contribute towards this effort. Thanks to a generous supporter who prefers to remain anonymous, every donation made to HALO will be matched, dollar for dollar - which means that any amount you donate will be doubled.

Almost one year after the “Four Day War”, there is still a need for support. There is still a need to ensure the security of the people of Karabakh, and the development of the region. HALO estimates that by 2020, it is possible for Nagorno-Karabakh to be 100% mine free - by donating now you can be part of making it a reality.
