Motorola South Asia Pte. Ltd contributed $60,000 to the British demining organization

Halo Trust for its work in Cambodia.

The funds, which were presented to Halo Trust's Project Coordinator Mr. Paul Heslop

at a ceremony on Jan 21, will be used to purchase additional demining equipment for

use in Siem Reap and Banteay Meanchey provinces. In a speech at the ceremony, Mr.

Perry Noakes, corporate Vice President for Motorola South Asia, said that while banning

the use of landmines was important, it was also essential that existing landmines

be removed from the ground.
