Many people in Laos are still poor today. Sudden sickness or accidents oftentimes mean financial ruin for a family. While traditional herbal medicine was still very much rooted in the daily lives of our forefathers, the knowledge is slowly fading today. We would like to share this ancient knowledge with locals as well as with tourists to encourage them to rediscover this precious heritage that can be a valuable alternative or addition to modern remedies.
We also plan to build a Herb Center with a little exhibition and a Garden and Restaurant close to Kuangsi in the near future. We’ll keep you posted!
