Silly me for not checking the JewishGen Gazetteer first. It lists a Koloniya Galoche, also known as Halochi, in this location: https://www.google.com/maps?z=9&q=47.519444,29.358889+(Halochi)

Based on there being no mention of this place in the JewishGen Communities Database, it seems to me more likely than not that this village's Jewish community was very small, probably no more than a handful of Jewish families. The nearest place in the Communities Database is Okny, also known as Krasni Okny: https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=9022061 

Maybe you'll have better luck finding more information on Kolonia Galoche by first looking for sources on the Jewish community of Krasni Okny?
