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

Hey. Just stand next to this so I can take a picture... #uxo? #noballs #kickitpussy #golongprivate

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

Scattered amid the craters from bombs that exploded 50 years ago, lie many of these unexploded beasts. This 700 pounder is too heavy to move, so the #HandicapInternational de-mining team will dig a deep hole on the spot, carefully lower the bomb into it, clear the nearby village just in case and blow it.

This is the type of kit we use in the UK to search for #uxo in green field sites.. this little 1.5 meter wide frame needs to cover 22 hectares... that's a lot of horsing 😂🗡

La "#guerra segreta" quella che gli USA hanno combattuto in #Laos per colpire i vietnamiti lanciando 2 milioni di #bombe il 30% delle quali rimaste inesplose. Ora queste pietre bianche segnano le aree bonificate. Il 5% del totale.

In Laos, Mr Chanlern approached HALO and submitted a request for clearance of his three hectares of land, which he had plans to build a charcoal kiln and cultivate paddy rice.

“When I first I decided to work on the land I found so many items of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) that I had to stop work and ask HALO for help. It was too risky. Now, I feel very safe to work on the land and I can carry out whatever plans I have for development.”

Our teams found 105 items of UXO in and around his land, which he now uses safely and employs 12 local people to work on it.

We visited the UXO Survivors Centre today and read heart breaking stories of young children and adults being seriously wounded or killed by unexploded devices whilst simply playing or tending to crops. I had no knowledge of the Secret War before arriving in Laos and it has been a shocking discovery to learn that people are still dying or being horrifically wounded from bombs dropped over 30 years ago. With 2 million tonnes of bombs dropped between 1963 and 1973 (one bomb for every 8 minutes) there are an estimated 30 million bombs still unexploded in Laos. The threat of being killed by a bomb in Laos is a very real prospect for many. Some of the bombs pictured would of contained 600 'bomblets' filled with hundreds of ball bearings. At the current rate of clearance it will take around 100 years to rid Laos of UXOs.

Touring the bizarre Plain of Jars archeological site, where thousands of human-sized jars dot the landscape...
Mr Noud (photographed) helped clear this site of unexploded ordinances from America's 'Secret War' in Laos so that visitors and archeologists could once again visit the Plain of Jars, albeit on clearly designated paths. Wander off the path and you do so at your own risk...

It seems our grenade fuses need a bit of tweaking, and had to be blown in place.

An eye opening visit to the Cambodian Landmine Museum north Siem Reap always makes one thankful for one's physical health. The pain and heartache caused to the millions affected by these horrible devices in Cambodia and other corners of the globe can only be imagined. FEB2017

COPE Visitor Centre, Vientiane. If you're in the city, this small museum, ensconced inside the grounds of a hospital, is a must visit. A collection of artefacts, moving video testimonies, photographs, real life stories, a recreated rural home & explanation of the impact of the Vietnam war & bombings on Laos and the lives of those living with disabilities, the visitor centre is an unparalleled source of information & unlike other museums I've visited before. COPE is the main source of artificial limbs & prosthetics to those with disabilities & those who have suffered loss of limbs & injuries due to UXO left over from mass bombing of Laos during the Vietnam War. It was extremely moving and hopeful to see the documentaries showing how COPE have mobile initiatives which takes their services to rural & mountainous areas & provides prosthetics & medical care to the poor for free. It was also powerful see displayed wooden prosthetics, handmade by an old man living in rural area & injured by an UXO. The consequences of the bombings on these everyday lives is unimaginable to most of us but the COPE visitor centre goes a long way to raise awareness & understanding - one of the most important museums I've visited.
