Give Children A Choice's UXO victim advocacy paid off. After a few email exchanges with MAG USA and MAG Lao, a visit to MAG Laos office in Vientiane late last year, MAG Lao agreed to help.
MAG Lao sent their UXO team to the Yang’s half-acre property and found 11 UXO, including four BLU26s. The BLU26 bombie is the most common UXO of the 80 million, left in Lao by the US over 40 years ago. It was the bombie that blinded Kayeng.
