The HALO Trust has 100 local staff in blockaded Nagorno Karabakh


YEREVAN, JANUARY 6, ARTSAKHPRESS. The HALO Trust -the world’s largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization – said it has around 100 local staff in Nagorno Karabakh and expressed concern over the ongoing blockade of the Lachin Corridor.

“The HALO Trust is seriously concerned by the ongoing blockade of the Lachin corridor that provides the only link to Nagorno Karabakh.

After almost one month of closure, we are closely following the humanitarian impact of the blockade. HALO has around 100 local staff on the ground in Karabakh and we are monitoring the availability of food and other supplies for them and their communities.

HALO is hoping for a swift resolution. However, we are in regular contact with our regional partners and other humanitarian organizations to coordinate humanitarian assistance, as needed,” the organization said in a statement.

Azerbaijan is keeping the Lachin Corridor blocked since December 12, 2022. Azerbaijan has ignored numerous demands and calls from the international community to open the road.
