Amplifying Our Work

Since our founding in 2004, we have achieved an enormous amount on

a very limited budget. As we look ahead at the start of a new decade, we are energized by our core pillars: History. Healing. Hope.

Our efforts have contributed significantly  to increases in U.S. investment in unexploded ordnance (UXO) clearance and survivor assistance in Laos, from $1.3 million per year in 2004 to a historic amount today.


Legacies of War does not receive any government funding. In bringing greater attention and increasing resources, we’ve helped to make a real impact on the ground in Laos: more land being cleared, lives being saved, and additional care and services made available for the approximately 15,000 UXO survivors living in Laos.
