The United States Ambassador to Kosovo, Greg Delawie, attended a ceremony organized by Halo Trust, a British-American non-profit organization dedicated to removing the destruction left by war, especially land mines.
The ceremony, held yesterday, was purposely for returning the land to the local community, after the land was ravaged by unexploded ordinances due to the destruction left behind in the Kosovo War at the end of the 20th century.
"Halo Trust has completed clearance operations in this area and today they are officially handing this land back to the community. This makes a real and lasting contribution to people’s daily lives," praised Delawie.
Since 1999, Halo Trust has cleared over 4,400 mines, 4,860 cluster bombs, and 500 other unexploded ordinances in Kosovo.
The goal of their organization is to have Kosovo mine-free by 2020.
