A hydroelectric dam by Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy Power Company at Attapeu Province of Laos collapsed on July 23, 2018. Five hundred million tons of water flooded six lower towns, leaving more than 130 dead or missing and displacing about 6,000 people.

The Intl. WeLoveU Foundation set out to help damage restoration and comfort flood victims. The WeLoveU Laos Chapter carried out volunteer services in every way possible; it opened a free meal service camp, ran the WeLoveU School, conducted environmental cleanups around the refugee camp, installed and fixed drains, and offered hairstyling services. Around 17,000 man-days of the WeLoveU members volunteered for the services, sharing pain and joy with flood victims to overcome difficulties.
