North Koreans who escape to China live under constant threat of arrest and forced repatriation back to North Korea. About 80% of these refugees are women and children. Women are particularly vulnerable to trafficking, sex slavery, and forced marriages.
Established in 2010 by NKHR Board Members Mi-sook Lee and Young Seon Eom, and NKHR Director General Youngja Kim, NKHR’s Sharing Hope Project responds to the many cries of help from North Korean refugees:
“Please save me.”
“I’ve been sold five times.”
“I don’t have any hope left.”
“I want to get an education.”
Through private donations, NKHR’s Sharing Hope Project helps these refugees in crisis. The cost of saving one life is approximately USD 2,000 to 3,000. NKHR invites you to help save the lives of North Korean refugees. Please consider donating to the Sharing Hope Project.
