The Overview

During the Vietnam War, some 260 million cluster bombs were dropped over Laos, which is one of the most heavily bombed countries in the world. For an informative and sobering insight on the impact of UXO’s (unexploded ordnance) on this landlocked nation, visit the interactive exhibition at COPE (which stands for Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise), a local initiative that works in partnership with the National Rehabilitation Center. The organization also provides prosthetics and mobility devices to aid UXO victims.
