During the Vietnam War-era, over 270 million bombs were dropped, an estimated 80 million remain, killing and maiming Lao villagers today. There are over 12,000 victims from accidents caused by unexploded bomblets.
This year’s theme, “LaoNow/ActNow” will highlight the urgency to make sure that the U.S. government follows through on its $90 million pledge made by President Obama last year.
Over the past 10 years, Legacies of War has built a strong network of support among policymakers in Washington, DC. This month marked the beginning of a new administration in the White House and Congress with new priorities. Past commitments and policies are being reversed - nothing is guaranteed.
Guests will learn how the problem is being addressed, and ways in which people in the U.S. can help to clear Laos of bombs, support survivors of accidents, and help to create a safer future for the people of Laos.
Proceeds from the event will support Legacies of War's life-saving and awareness-raising projects on the bombs leftover in Laos more than 40 years after the Vietnam War-era.
Finally, delicious Lao food will be served!
