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.
