The HALO Trust is gravely concerned for the safety of our staff and their families in Nagorno Karabakh. Civilians in Stepanakert have moved to bomb shelters and communications with our colleagues is extremely difficult. After many months of blockade, food supplies are very low and Karabakh is on the verge of a major humanitarian crisis. HALO is one of two international organisations inside Nagorno Karabakh and calls on the international community to exert pressure for a halt to the fighting and the resumption of humanitarian aid.
