Those who have been hurt by Agent Orange Dioxin, but were not in the military have been forgotten. Little to nothing has been done to identify and meet the needs of those left behind. COVVHA is committed to educating others about the lasting negative effects of chemical warfare. COVVHA is committed to help find answers, resources, and ultimately justice for all secondary exposures to military herbicides also known as Agent Orange as well as the other Rainbow Herbicides.
