The difference you can make: In Zimbabwe, families live surrounded by landmines. Every day, children walk to school through the minefields. People go hungry because land is too dangerous to farm. But you can change this.
The HALO Trust works around the world destroying landmines and the dangerous debris of war. Run for HALO and raise money for our UK Aid Match Breaking Boundaries appeal to make land safe in Zimbabwe.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT! All money raised before 22nd December will be doubled by the UK government.
