Prince Harry thanks HALO Trust employees who have switched from doing one dangerous job to another

The Duke of Sussex has written to HALO's 8,500 staff to express his "admiration at their dedication and determination" in the face of the Covid-19 crisis. Harry wrote on learning that HALO staff have remained in countries such as Afghanistan, Somalia and Libya to clear landmines while pivoting operations in many countries to respond to the needs of local communities as a result of Covid-19.

Per their website, HALO advises that it has been providing ambulances and logistics to medical authorities in Zimbabwe, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Guinea Bissau. In Syria and Myanmar HALO has been providing hygiene kits, PPE and health education to camps for families displaced by conflict. In Cambodia HALO’s teams have reached over half a million people with health information on Covid.

James Cowan, HALO’s CEO said: "It is very thoughtful of the Duke to write to HALO staff in this way. Not many people realise we do more than landmine clearance. In responding to Covid we have the skills and equipment to respond. And above all we can operate in some very dangerous places with the trust of the local people."
