Laos is the most bombed country on Earth. Snake Bomb® Coffee’s mission is to raise awareness and support for economic, social, and environmental initiatives within Laos – including programs that remove unexploded bombs and provide anti-venom for snake bites.
Currently Laos is ranked 122 out of 169 in least developed countries in the world, according to the United Nations.
Snake bites are one of the most neglected public health issues in poor rural communities in South East Asia. Most villages lack accessible and adequate medical facilities, and as a result, it is estimated that 16,000 people, many being farmers, needlessly die each year from snake bites.
Over 70,000,000 cluster bomblets (or about 270 million bombs) were dropped on Laos. It's estimated that 76,000,000 bombs did not explode. Most of these bombs still pose a real threat to Lao People.
