We're building a hospital in North Korea to bring hope to children with cerebral palsy throughout the nation.
In 2010, the Rajin shoe factory was started in North Korea, in an effort to create a working environment for local men and women while initiating a snow boot donation to children throughout the country to combat the harsh winters.
With the help of the Korea Education Fund (KEF), a North Korean NGO, and in partnership with generous donors, our on-site field team has distributed snow boots to orphanages, kindergartens, and schools throughout the country. There are verification trips that are made every year in order to ensure that the children received their snow boots. Through our annual campaign, over 82,000 pairs of snow boots have been delivered to the North Korean children since 2010.
With full permission from the North Korean government, our field team in China travels into NK on a weekly basis to provide food for children at nurseries and kindergartens, as well as medicine and supplies to clinics in the rural villages of Rajin. Since 2008, we have restored & rebuilt many schools and clinics in remote areas to provide for the needs of the poor, young, old and sick who are most susceptible to malnutrition and inadequate health care.
Today, we gather and distribute food, supplies and medical aid to nine nursery & kindergarten schools and five medical clinics for the children and the staff. Throughout the year, we promote a number of other projects including the maintenance & construction of the buildings and supplying coal & wood to families for heating in the winter months.
