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.

Very eye opening. Seems like this organization does a lot of good work. It's so good to raise awareness about these things. This is a must see in Vientiane and if you are able to support the organization financially, it's a great cause!
Definite must place to visit. The history of what the US did is awful but the work being done now is wonderful - by this organization and others. No pressure to donate but we did. Great home made ice cream too !
Amazing place to get to know a little bit more about the effects of the war on this amazing country. Ask to watch some of the videos they have, is really impressive. But be prepared, it can get a little bit emotional.
Beautiful place with lots of interesting information. Learned so much on the history and the effects of the American War on Laos. Definitely a place to visit
You must visit and support thus llace. The displays and education was a real eye opener on the legacy of war and maiming by UXO unexploded ordinance dropted by the US military c.40 years ago. Please vjsit and donate to their cause.
