COPE’s mission is to help people with mobility-related disabilities move on by supporting access to physical rehabilitation services in the Lao PDR.
The COPE Visitor Centre is close during the lock-down.
PEOPLE WE’VE HELPED MOVE ON
After my accident I had the idea of fabricating my home-made wooden leg. But it was very heavy and not comfortable!
I love to help my father farming our fruit garden. We have so many “chan-chan” trees, it’s a specialty from our region and it’s very tasty!
I’ve always been careful about UXOs. However, one day my arm was suddenly snatched away from me.
WHAT WE DO
Since its creation in 1996, COPE’s work has helped thousands of people with mobility-related disabilities, including UXO survivors, access prosthetic and orthotic services, allowing them to regain mobility and dignity.
We enable access to:
- Prosthetic devices
- Orthotic devices
- Other mobility assistive devices

- Physiotherapy and occupational therapy
- Related surgical procedures
