QLA is very pleased to announce a new agreement with regional law firm DFDL Legal & Tax. This is the third consecutive year DFDL Legal & Tax has supported QLA, which demonstrates their continued confidence in the work QLA does.
This year’s funding is double the amount of last year and is for the specific purpose of providing for the cost of medical treatment for UXO survivors in Xieng Khouang province. DFDL Legal & Tax is the only donor to QLA which provides funds for this specific purpose. QLA is the only not for profit association in Lao PDR set up for the specific purpose of assisting UXO survivors, people with disabilities and UXO affected communities in Xieng Khouang Province, the second most bombed province in the country and the fourth poorest.
Unexploded ordnance (UXO) continues to be an issue in Xieng Khouang Province and despite very dedicated work to clear the bombs, the task is huge and many areas have yet to be cleared. Under the previous grant from DFDL Legal & Tax, QLA provided assistance for the medical treatment of 24 UXO survivors.
On behalf of UXO survivors in Xieng Khouang Province, QLA would like to thank DFDL Legal & Tax for their continued support.
