Our story

Vientiane Rescue is the first and only Rescue service of Vientiane, Laos

We started in 2010, with a handful of volunteers, most of them underaged. A group of wholehearted people with a lot of hope and expectations, and nothing else. At the time we all met, the Foundation we belong to Continue reading “Our story”

While we sometimes have access to embassy funding, we especially rely on private donations.

We are a local Foundation, not an NGO, so this means that we don’t have administration, logistics, secretaries people or paid staff to handle the fundraising / communication / management.
