Who we support

The Halo Trust

We’d like to introduce you to a charity we wholeheartedly support. The Halo Trust is an NGO (UK)/Not-for-Profit organisation (US) that “specialises in the removal of the hazardous debris of war”. In the 25 years since it commenced operations it has achieved the following milestones:

  • over 1.3 million landmines destroyed
  • over twelve million items of larger calibre ordnance destroyed
  • over fifty million bullets destroyed
  • over 2,800 heavy weapon systems immobilised
  • over 129,000 assault rifles destroyed
  • over 7,400 minefields cleared
  • 27,367 hectares (67,625 acres) made safe from landmines
  • 128,785 hectares (318,235 acres) made safe from unexploded and abandoned ordnance
  • 12,409 kilometers (7,710 miles) of roads cleared

Despite these amazing statistics, there is yet much to do. Whilst progress has been phenomenal, many mines remain putting the lives of men, women and most often, children at risk. That is why we have decided to donate $1 from from every initial subscription payment of Lifetick to The Halo Trust to support them in the work they do in the many war torn places around the world such as Afghanistan, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Mozambique, Angola, Somaliland, Georgia, Nagorno Karabakh, Kosovo and Colombia. We encourage you to visit their website for more information about how they do what they do and if you are in a position to do so, then by all means contribute in any way you can or spread the word. It is very easy to get caught up in our own goals in life, but it is also not out of reach to become a part of the worthiest of goals, even if it is in some small way.
