Laos

Since 2000, AAR Japan has supported production of wheelchairs and promoted the social participation of persons with disabilities (PWDs) at the wheelchair workshop located in Laos' National Rehabilitation Center. In 2008, we began supporting the Welfare Facility for Children with Disabilities in the nation's capital of Vientiane, and in September 2009, we began supporting victims of unexploded ordnance (UXO) including cluster munitions, still remaining in northern Laos as a result of the Vietnam War. In November 2015, AAR opened an office in Phongsaly povince and started providing the local residents with maternal and child health services.
