Facility for Homeless, Addicts in Laos Faces Budget Crunch

A facility for the homeless, mentally ill and drug addicts in the Lao capital Vientiane is facing budget shortfalls and has resorted to fundraising in order to continue operations.

The Somsanga Support Center in Vientiane’s Sayettha district urgently needs funding to continue to feed its 230 internees, some of whom are as young as 15 years old and others who are quite elderly, sources say.
