How to Help

Our major field activities that require regular support are:

– Providing secret foster homes in China for stateless children of North Korean refugee mothers who have been forcibly repatriated to North Korea or have fled abusive domestic situations by Chinese men who have “purchased” them from human traffickers in China.
– Assisting North Korean refugees at extreme risk of detention, torture or even summary execution if repatriated to North Korea to make their way to safety along the so-called ‘underground railroad’
– Sending already prepared (in China) food to hungry orphans and schoolchildren inside North Korea
