HOW TO HELP
A world that is more just and peaceful... We're here to build it.
RECLAIMING OUR LEGACIES, ONCE AND FOR ALL
We raise awareness about and address the long-term human health and environmental consequences of war through on-ground researching, programming and advocacy and strategic campaigns.
We envision a world free of the ravages of modern war where the rights and dignity of all are respected and where healthy land, forests and bodies of water and biodiversity are protected and ensured.
We believe that the end to war will ensure the right of all to economic security, dignity, health, education and clean natural resources and that this right will be protected and guaranteed for future generations.
Our expertise derives from decades of on-ground research, surveys, data-gathering, and providing direct support to those impacted in post-war countries.
We continue to expand our services to help
hundreds of youth and young adults disproportionately affected by:
Millions of Explosive Remnants of War that litter the countryside continuing to inflict injuries and death upon hundreds of victims every year
Thousands of acres of defoliated forests and tropical landscapes that remain in poor ecological condition and have poisoned food sources and more
Dioxin hotspots at former U.S. military bases throughout southern Viet Nam and potentially in Laos
Disabilities and illnesses caused by exposure to Agent Orange and other Dioxin-contaminated herbicides
Your support encompasses our research, policy advocacy and all of our health, social and educational programs and resources that have been designed to address the specific issues people living with a disability or illness face in their communities.
13 YEARS OF IMPACT
We provide families assistance through animal husbandry, financial support, business consultation, home improvement or vocational training.
We finance medical operations for children with physical disabilities and conditions, and also provide wheelchairs, prosthetics and other adaptive equipment.
We support early intervention and education programs by providing scholarships and many educational opportunities.
We address the consequences of wartime use of herbicides and Explosive Remnants of War, so that communities can renew their relationship with their natural resources.
OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH: HOW WE'RE TAKING ACTION
We've identified three critical areas where your support will help us make the greatest difference....
Ending war’s many legacies and bringing change start with the facts. Our experts do accurate, cross-checked research into civilian harm claims and public health and environmental issues associated with wartime use of herbicides and Explosive Remnants of War.
Advocacy and Policy
We use our research and analysis to build proactive awareness, responsibility and ultimately broad public support for post-war remediation and recovery efforts and to influence and press governments, companies and decision-makers to do the right thing.
Through our distinct body of vision, practice and change, along with our research and advocacy, we work with practitioners to stabilize affected communities, peoples and land in post-war Laos, Viet Nam and Cambodia, and also veterans in the U.S.
