LiNK's mission is to "redefine the North Korea crisis through creative storytelling, while providing emergency relief to North Korean refugees and pursuing an end to the human rights crisis".

There are currently up to 300,000 North Korean refugees who are living in fear of being discovered by Chinese authorities. The Chinese government disregards international law and sends defectors back to North Korea, where they face imprisonment, torture, and even execution.

Our goal is to raise awareness about the crisis and to raise enough money ($2,500) to bring one North Korean refugee out of hiding in China. That money will fund one refugee's entire journey out of hiding and into safety at LiNK's shelters. It covers food, transportation, papers, guides, housing, and every other expense faced by a traveler through Asia's underground railroad.

The North Korea crisis is so complex and daunting, yet I find it inspiring that a group of individuals can make a huge difference by not only raising awareness, but also giving a refugee a lifetime of freedom.
