Health and Well-Being Program


Pink Sugar

War Legacies Project has helped people affected by legacies of war advocate for themselves, access healthcare/rehabilitation services, find specialists, and receive proper care. We have worked with communities, especially youth and young adults living with a disability or illness, local health centers and other health institutions, to get people with disabilities to receive the best care possible. We also support skilled health and medical providers.

How we get there:

We provide special equipment such as wheelchairs and prosthetics for youth and adults living with a disability or a missing limb. We also provide assistance through physical and occupational therapy, through partnerships with local and provincial medical schools, so that all can manage their particular conditions and walk, write or feed themselves.

Surgery and Medical Care

We help to increase the access to health institutions for many—children and adults—living in rural areas of Vietnam and Laos by providing transportation or subsidizing travel costs. We also provide financial assistance to ensure that all can undergo necessary surgery to repair congenital heart defects, club foot, cleft palate, and other birth defects, as well as treatments for dialysis and other chronic illnesses.

Caregiver Support

We piloted a home health care program in collaboration with the local Red Cross volunteers. Trained medical professionals provided frequent well-being check-ups and trained family care-givers in techniques to make feeding, bathing and lifting easier and safer. With additional funding, we would like to expand the program to other families.

Poor health, malnutrition, and difficulties accessing proper health care make it hard for people to improve their lives, especially people with disabilities. Through our Health Program, we are working to ensure that people with disabilities living in affected post-war countries receive the wide-ranging health and medical support they need.

In rural Vietnam and Laos, access to health care for people with disabilities is challenging. Most families caring for severely disabled children live below the poverty line and do not have the resources to access specialized health care and rehabilitation services to address the specific needs of their children.
