BENEFITING: LIBERATION IN NORTH KOREA

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

THE STORY:

Tens of thousands of North Koreans have left behind their families and homes, fleeing because of extreme economic hardships, political and religious persecution and a denial of basic freedoms. It's impossible to go directly to South Korea because the DMZ, which separates the two Koreas, is the most heavily fortified border in the world. Instead, they go into China, where they have to live in hiding because of an agreement between the Chinese and North Korean governments to forcibly repatriate those who have crossed without permission. After hearing countless stories of North Koreans who struggled to pay brokers to reach freedom or women who were exploited along the journey, LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) decided to offer an alternative option for North Korean refugees to escape China without cost or condition and settle in a country where they’re safe and free.

$2500 is what it takes to rescue one North Korean refugee hiding in China.

Until the conditions inside North Korea are radically transformed, the people will continue to risk their lives to leave, and we will continue in our efforts to provide assistance to them.

To date, LiNK has helped rescue 117 North Korean refugees.
