After Ms. Choi tried to escape thestarvation in North Korea, she was sold into slavery to a Han Chinese man, 9years younger than herself. The sexualand other assaults l occurred at least 3 times a week. Weeping, frightened, terrorized, she couldremember her life before slavery - born in Musan Hamkyungbookdo in the late1960’s, she had been married with children...
Her husband had mysteriously disappearedone day. As a single mother, she hadstruggled through trying to keep her children alive. She had tried to make a living as a merchant,but as is common, the police confiscated her belongings.
There had been nowhere to turn, nohope! Desperate to make money, she had crossed the Tuman River in hope offeeding her children...
But now - as a slave in China, shewondered where her children were. Shecouldn’t help them now, and she was a prisoner to a man who was intent onhurting her.
She tells us that she raised pigs, andpicked up a few wild apricots that she could find, to make money. But of course she never madeenough. Poverty haunted her daily. Andone day, when she fell from the cliff, she was badly injured - but her husbanddid not take her to the hospital, and he beat her even more.
Out of this sorrow, she finallyescaped. She found NAUH and is now onher way to South Korea. She hopes to learn any kind of skill to make money forher children in North Korea. She dearly wants to be united with her children.We are hoping that her wishes come true. This hope is possible because of our supporters!
