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.

Cope Visitor Centre, Vientiane Reviews
Absolutely amazing and enlightening experience. Very interesting and good place to visit for a bit of history and understanding into what the country has been through and continues to go through as a result of past actions of other countries. Would recommend!
Visit the and support them. Great exhibition. Staffs are friendly and they are patient to answer your questions. You can know more how Laos people's life after Vietnam war and how COPE help to clear the bomb and help Laos people. If you have time, you can watch some short movies there.
This place is absolutely awesome. It's nothing massive or extravagant, that just wouldn't make sense. It is an education centre about the secret war, all of the ongoing affects that the unexploded bombs have on the country, and the work that COPE is doing regarding aid through prosthetics. The movie room has a few options of lengths...... Watch the 53minute one!
Awesome place to learn, reflect, support, grow. Also you can buy adorable things like this keychain that come laced with dark humor meant to help cleanse your soul.
I really appreciate this visitor center and the great work this organization is doing. It's well worth a visit and quite eye opening.
