During her harrowing cycling journey down the Ho Chi Minh trail, Rebecca Rusch went looking for the place where her father’s plane was shot down during the Vietnam War. What she found along the way was another tragic legacy of the war – unexploded ordnance. As the arduous trail took her deeper into Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, Rebecca witnessed the traumatic impact of explosive remnants of war that still plague some of the poorest communities to this day.
On the trail, she also met the MAG team working to remove these explosive hazards in Laos and was immediately inspired to help.
