“A Donation gets you a Tee Shirt”
Review of Uxo Lao

Uxo Lao
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Basically a room with posters and a few examples of bombs and mechanisms. Its a great cause and a good opportunity to put some money towards overcoming the problem of UXOs.

At the Uxo shopfront, signposted as MAG for some reason, you can ask to see a short film about Laos' ubiquitous scourge of unexploded bombs that were 'donated' to the country by the US military when they were engaged in Indochina. I have not found a more compelling reason for developed countries to donate money and/or expertise previously in my travels.

By visiting Uxo Lao you will completely understand why the local people are so reserved and distant when they meet Westeners.

This is well worth a visit to get an insight into the problems of the area. Whilst there make sure that you make a donation to their work!!

We were aware of the work of this organization through watching a documentary on the ABC. They have done and are still doing great work around Laos clearing UXO. A $10 donation also gets you a free T shirt. They also have free screenings of video documentaries.
