This past year, NKHR’s volunteer group, the NKHR Rescue Fund, gathered other $21,000 in donations, bringing13 North Korean refugees safely from China to South Korea. This exceeded their fundraising goal by almost half.




A volunteer group within NKHR, the Rescue Fund runs online campaigns and hosts a variety of events in the Seoul area, raising money to rescue North Korean refugees facing human rights violations in third countries. In 2015, the Rescue Fund held film screenings, trivia nights, and most notably, sponsored a team to run in the Kim Dae Jung Peace Marathon in July.


The Rescue Fund has big fundraising plans in 2016. Take a look at their website to stay up to date about their future events, including a hypnotist show in March! Click here.
