Nearly forty years after the end of the U.S. bombing in Laos, more than 100 Laotian villagers — 40 percent of them children — are killed or maimed every year by unexploded cluster bombs. About 80 million cluster bombs contaminate around one third of the land in Laos, posing a constant threat to the people and their economic security.

You can make a difference to end this deadly legacy. Your donation to Legacies of War can help change this terrible reality.

Join thousands of others around the country who have expressed their outrage and sadness and have taken action to make a difference. Here is what some of our supporters have said:

“For the children over in Laos the war still goes on. Let’s clean up our mess. I am a Vietnam Vet who served in the Air Force during that time.” – Reseda, CA

“I sympathize with the issues in Laos, even though I was not born there. The problem of UXO’s in Laos is more of a humanitarian issue rather than just solely being about Laos, the birth place of my parents and many of my friends.” – Yuba City, CA
