We can't change our legacy.

Or can we?

began in 2008 with a vision of mitigating and ultimately eliminating

War Legacies Project

war legacies. Our dedicated team has since been raising awareness about and addressing the long-term human health and environmental consequences of Viet Nam War-era use of toxic herbicides and Explosive Remnants of War and providing assistance to those impacted in affected countries.

All 3 countries suffered an additional tragedy from 7 million tons of bombs and other explosives.

Between 1961 and 1971, the U.S. sprayed 12 million gallons of Dioxin-contaminated Agent Orange and 8 million gallons of other herbicides on Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia—an average of 5,200 gallons a day for 3,735 days.

Together, Agent Orange and Explosive Remnants of War left a legacy of destruction, death and sickness.

We bring all legacies born from war to light, through developing a greater understanding of their true costs and long-term consequences—so that we may end them and war, once and for all.

Agent Orange Record, our project website, provides an objective and comprehensive account of the legacy of Agent Orange in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia, the U.S. and other areas.

Our Survey began in 2014 to determine the consequences of wartime use of herbicides in Laos and to identify the extent of Agent Orange contamination and its human health impacts.

OUR PROGRAMS

Our programming comes from accurate, cross-checked research and analysis to build proactive awareness and broad public support for post-war remediation and to stabilize communities, people and land.

We have helped hundreds of children and young adults with Agent Orange-associated disabilities or illnesses and provided many financial support, wheelchairs, prosthetics and other adaptive equipment.

We address the environmental consequences of wartime use of herbicides and Explosive Remnants of War, so that communities can renew their relationship with their natural resources.
