#memorialdayweekend is time to reflect. The impact and reach of the #BloodRoad film tour goes further than a film and an amazing story. Part of my mission after coming home from the #HoChiMinhtrail: to do what I can to expedite the clean up of the unexploded ordnance left from the #Vietnam war and be part of the healing. I have partnered with @minesadvisorygroup and @article22 and made these bracelets for the film tour. They are made by Lao artisans from the scrap metal from bombs. $38 and sale of each one clears 12.5 square meters of land in Laos from UXOs. Donated to MAG in my father's name. I will have them with me on all film tour locations including @dirtykanza next. And they are also on the shopping section of www.rebeccarusch.com #telluridecolorado #filmfestival #filmfest #filmtour #mtb #VietnamWar #memorialday #uxo #loveisthebomb #begood #bracelet #bracelets

Jassem, 10, groans pain as he lays on a gurney in an ambulance awaiting transport to a hospital, near Mosul, Iraq. Jassem was playing with his brother Attallah outside when they picked up an unexploded ordinance in the Sheshan neighborhood of Mosul. As Iraqi forces push further into the neighborhoods of Mosul, they have faced stiff resistance from ISIS. 1 million civilians are estimated to be in Mosul, where many have been prevented from leaving by ISIS, while others have remained in their homes rather than fleeing to internally displaced persons camps. The presence of so many civilians inside the city has raised concerns over civilian casualties, who also must navigate the minefield of improvised explosive devices and UXOs left behind by ISIS as they retreat. The high number of civilians has also slowed the offensive, which began last month against the extremist group in taking back the so-called capital of their caliphate. For the civilians who remain, they face food shortages and the constant threat of being caught in the crossfire. #mosul #iraq #isis #uxo #leica

Visited the UXO centre today to make a donation:
Lao PDR is the most heavily bombed nation in the world. Between 1964-1973 the USA flew more than half a million bombing missions, delivering more than two million tons of explosive ordnance, including 266 million submunitions (known as “bombies” in Laos) released from cluster bombs. Around 80 million failed to explode and are still killing and maiming. www.uxolao.org #Laos #History #Donate #UXO #SecretWar

Hut hut! It's football season! Right? Go Dolphins lol #nothingtoseehere #uxo

Growing up my mom always told me, "remember to pray for all the children around the world." Whenever I asked why, she'd reply, "because they have no control to whom or the conditions they're born into." Mama B's lesson has stuck with me my whole life. These children in Laos were born into a land filled with UXOs dropped there many moons ago. Now, teachers and outside support groups work to educate them about the 'bombies' and to keep away.
Education is the first step in helping these children keep safe, alive and happy. Play with footballs not bombs. #sos #soswomensworkshop2017 #laos #uxo #tbt

Food stalls on #mekong riverside, #vientiane #laos spotted on visit there last week. I spent a day meeting government and development partners, and UNDP staff and heads of UN agencies. While there, I launched three @undp flagship programmes in Laos 🇱🇦 on #sdg achievement and graduation from Least Developed Country status, clearance of unexploded ordinance #uxo from the war, and governance. @undpasiapacific

Cambodia has a major problem with landmines, especially in rural areas. This is the legacy of three decades of war which has taken a severe toll on the Cambodians, with more than 40 000 amputees, which is one of the highest rates in the world.

Day 148: The music did not stop all night, it actually got louder. I doubt any of the passengers wanted it as they tried to sleep. My best guess was it was to keep the driver awake through the night. It was also the first night we've been cold since China as the air con blazed out, again I guess to keep the driver alert on the windy Lao roads. To finish off a less than enjoyable journey, yet again our night bus arrived earlier than advertised and we pulled in to Vientiane at 4.30am, this time opting to go straight to our hostel which remarkably was open. One bonus was an authentic morning alms giving which was underway when we arrived into the city, this time with plenty of locals making offerings by candlelight. Our room wasn't available but they let us crash in a room which resembled a holding cell, stinking of mould. However, there were gym mats on the floor and after about 15 minutes we were fast asleep. Our room wouldn't be ready until lunchtime so we headed off for some breakfast and coffee before heading off to the COPE Visitor Centre to learn about all the work they are doing with disabled locals, largely as a result of unexploded bombs scattered throughout the country. Between 1964 and 1973, the US dropped two million tonnes of bombs on Laos in 580k missions. This worked out as a bombing every 8 minutes, 24 hours a day for 9 years which is pretty harrowing and rather hard to comprehend. Most of these were cluster bombs and it is estimated that up to 30% of the bombs failed to detonate and are littered across Laos to this day, maiming unsuspecting locals and those searching for scrap metal to sell. The exhibition was really informative and hit home - a cause to support when we are home. After getting some lunchtime smoothies we headed back to the hotel for some much needed R&R in the room and by the pool before rushing to the banks of the Mekong to catch the last seconds of the sun setting. Wandered around the night market before deciding that we needed some home comforts and bravely opted for pizza and pasta. We needn't have worried - the pizza was amazing #day148 #laos #vientiane #holdingcell #cope #uxo #secretwar #pizza #pasta #doubletrouble
