1964 – 1973 Laos
Two million tons of ordnance were dropped on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions.
That’s 1 B-52 plane load of bombs.
Every 8 minutes – 24 hours a day – for 9 years.
Laos is one of the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.
At the current rate of removal, it will take an estimated 800 years to clear all unexploded ordnance.
These startling facts were the driving force in the Sacred by Design quest to help change.
