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.
An one-of-a-kind collection
Legacies Library is a collection of books, films, articles, and oral histories vetted by Legacies of War that tells the story of the American bombing of Laos (1964-1973) and its neighbors in Vietnam and Cambodia.
