With your help, a team of brave deminers will work to clear hidden unexploded bombs.

Around 300,000 unexploded bombs are thought to be buried in and around the village of Vangkhom in Laos. This small farming community of just 151 people has spent decades living in danger. They need to be able to live in safety.

The brave deminers we plan to send to work in Vangkhom know full well the dangers posed by the bombs - they are all from the local area and grew up with the threat of the bombs. Today, they are proud to work to remove unexploded bombs from the land and make people safe.

With your help, a team of women will be dedicated to locating and destroying bombs in Vangkhom. Over 12 months, we can unlock an area of land equivalent to 23 football pitches, in locations prioritised by the people of the village. Land will be cleared so that children can play and go to school in safety.

Donate before 24th July and the value of your gift will be doubled by the UK government, enabling us to unlock twice the amount of land in Vangkhom.

There are only a few weeks left to have your donation doubled by the UK government, so act today - every gift makes a real difference to the people of Vangkhom.

A gift from you today of £25, doubled to £50 by the UK government, could clear unexploded bombs from 56 square metres of land in and around Vangkhom.
