How Heroes for Halo began

In November 2004 medical student Stuart Daly spent two weeks in Mozambique as a HALO Trust volunteer, helping to train local medical crews in how to deal with blast injuries.

After a second visit to Afghanistan in 2008 Stuart (now Dr Stuart Daly) launched the Heroes for Halo project. Stuart said:

“Raising money for HALO is worthwhile for me because more funding will actually solve the problem of land mines permanently. Once a mine field is cleared, it’s cleared forever.

“When HALO clears a mine field it’s 100% clear. I trust HALO enough to walk across mine fields they’ve cleared. That’s quite a recommendation when a single remaining mine could have meant me losing a leg, or even my life.

“Working for HALO you can see that every penny is spent wisely. As a visiting doctor I slept in the most basic accommodation and ate what everyone else did. I saw no frills and no extras. All funds were spent on the core work.”

Stuart had the idea of doing a sponsored kite surf. Initially approaching friends and business contacts to see if they would help, once the target of £10,000 was set the project took on a life of its own.

“People want to do things for good causes,” said Stuart. “We all want to see that we have an impact in life and being part of something like this has an impact on thousands of people”.
