Farid Homayoun, Afghanistan Program Manager, HALO Trust
Atta Arghandiwal, Banking Consultant; Author, Lost Decency: The Untold Afghan Story - Moderator
For over 20 years, Dr. Homayoun has been working to clear hazardous debris from Afghanistan. The Halo Trust is a non-profit, non-political charity, which is dedicated to the removal of the deadly debris of war. Over the past few decades, the trust has made hundreds of thousands of acres safe in war-torn lands. Since 1988, HALO has worked continuously in Afghanistan, despite regime changes, to directly assist over 1.6 million families. Yet in Afghanistan in 2014, one million people still live within 500 yards of a mined area. Dr. Homayoun will discuss his humanitarian work with the HALO Trust in Afghanistan.
