Prosthetics & UXO Clearance
After travelling to Cambodia and Laos and learning first hand of the 80 MILLION unexploded bombs in Laos and 5 Million mines in Cambodia and a great need for prosthetics, and learning that the runway in Vang Vieng was the USA bomber base in the Vietnam war where the bombers carpet bombed Laos courtesy of Richard Nixon, 37th President of the USA.
As I write, I have collected and donated $8,000 to various charities, the major beneficiaries being COPELaos $3,000 and APOPO.org $2,750. Maginternational are now high on my agenda for cleaning up bombs in Laos. I also want to see 3D Printing of colourful prosthetics for children in the COPELaos prosthetics centre.
$250 sent to CopeLaos for prosthetics June 2019. Total sent to charities now $10,250
Two more donations sent to the minefields in Cambodia totalling $400, so that total donated to several charities is now over $10,000
I have just sent $250 to APOPO hero rats for their mine clearance project in Cambodia. (November 2018).
