Road crew left villagers’ lives at risk.  This video shows how WHWV came to their aid.

Why would a man once injured by a cluster bomb pick up another?  One brick short of a load?

To improve nutrition Lao government promotes insect farming and consumption.

Americans who’ve traveled in Laos will confirm that this is a nation of short people. My best posture, combined with an ambitious, vertebrae-cracking neck-stretch, still leaves me a hair under six feet tall.
