The HALO Trust is increasingly concerned about the impact the closure of the Lachin corridor is having on vulnerable people in Nagorno-Karabakh. Many daily essential items are now impossible to find, people are without heat through the winter months and children are missing out on their education because schools have been forced to close.
The HALO Trust is a neutral, non-political organization that does lifesaving work around the world including in Nagorno-Karabakh. On humanitarian grounds, we support the ruling by the International Court of Justice for the unimpeded movement of cargo, people and vehicles along the 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.
