Linda Gehman Peachey

AKRON, Pa. – One of Linda Gehman Peachey's earliest memories in Laos is visiting a family whose mother had just been killed by a cluster bomblet. The mother had been creating a new garden for her family when her hoe hit the ordnance, which exploded, leaving 11 children without their mother and a husband without his wife.
When Gehman Peachey and spouse Titus Peachey began working with MCC in Laos in early 1981, six years after the Vietnam War ended, fields literally were strewn with bomblets, tennis ball-size bombs originally held inside a U.S. cluster bomb. The Peacheys' five-year term started a life-time passion to help the people of Laos deal with the 80 million unexploded bomblets.
