Cope Visitor Centre - Review

A part of Laos’ troubled history is the Vietnam War which lasted till 1973. Around two million tons of ordnance was dropped on Laos during this war, which resulted in severe disability amongst the local population. The Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise (COPE) Centre works with disabled people in third world countries and offers rehabilitative service in terms of physical and psychological therapy. The Visitor Centre here offers interaction with victims, documentary films about UXOs and COPE. Visitors are welcome to custom-made ice-cream and refreshments at the Karma Cafe. Proceeds from this cafe go directly to the centre’s funds. Visitors can make donations and contribute to COPE’s mission.

  • They obviously do great work but I think they could sell themselves more. Most tourists don't mind paying extra for an item if the money is going to a charity. There was very little to buy here and the coffee bar did not have a great selection. Worth a visit just to see the great work they do.

  • One of the highlights of my stay in Vientiane. Creative, interesting, engaging, emotional exhibition that will leave you feeling connected to this country in deeper way. Do watch one of the many documentaries, leave a donation (entry is free), take your time and let it sink in. You can easily walk there from the center (30 min) or take a tuktuk (20000 kip).

  • Absolutely make a visit to here. It's a powerful message of the struggle that Laos has had and continues to have who the unexploded ordinance dropped during the secret war. The centre now uses its expertise to help all citizens with disabilities. It's wonderful to see the positive impact they have on the thousands of people in need.

  • This is a great place to visit! It's free if you go alone or for a small fee a man named jack will guide you thru with details that you won't get any other way
