Prosthetics & UXO Clearance

$9,652 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 14 months


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.

With a recent donation to Cope Laos of $200, we now have raised and donated $9,000. $3,600 to Cope Laos for prosthetics, $3,000 to Apopo for the Hero Rats who sniff out mines in Cambodia and $900 for MagInternatioal who clear up unexploded bombs in Laos. These are the charities I currently support. I am hoping MagInternational get their project approved by Global Development Group so you can donate in AUD without incurring bank fees. Previous donations in the early years were to Mivac, Vietnam Vets Mine Clearance Team, http://vvmct.com.au/ $1200 until I decided that using the Hero Rats was more cost effective than using people to detect the mines.

Receipts for donations in Vientiane on 2017 November trip to Laos, including thank you letter from Mag International. A bit embarrassing. Would have loved to have been able to add a zero to the donations....
