It’s difficult to expressthe sadness of a child, whose father has severe epilepsy. There was no knowing when Ms. Kim’s fatherwould be suddenly struck by this horrifying disease, with seizures. And then,her mother was blind.
From an early age, Ms. Kim was the breadwinner forher family. She was born in mid-1980 inChungjin, Hamkyungbookdo. Work on thefarm was so difficult for her, especially considering that the family debt frombuying corn supply could never decrease. It was a vicious circle and there was no way out. As a helpless young girl, the impact on hersoul was deep and painful.
Ms. Kim was continuallyhaunted by the compulsion to escape poverty and somehow rescue her family. She was completely vulnerable to the mythsabout resources and opportunities in China. When this sweet young woman crossed the Tuman River for the better life,she was captured and sold into slavery and sexual abuse.
The Han Chinese man whobought Ms. Kim had 2 sisters, and a father. And so, she now was the slave who was also the servant and house keeper for many households. Not only did she have slave and servantduties for the man’s family, but she was also expected to work for otherhouseholds in that area.
Sometimes she worked asmany as 20 plus hours a day to send money to her home in North Korea. We can’t share details about this; but in the meanwhile, she got pregnant fromher abuser, and had a baby.
Now, her life becameharsher. Her owner did not abuse hermore, but now his sisters hated her increasingly, and beat her many times. The pain and deteriorating health in Ms. Kim’sbody reflected the beatings.
Ms. Kim had escaped acountry once before - and now shedecided to flee for to South Korea. Perhaps with legal status, she might have a chance to know life as afree person!
