As a child, Ms. Yang suffered acute convulsions. In North Korea in the 1970’s, there was little hope for a person like her. Finding medicine was difficult, and paying for it was next to impossible. She needed medicine daily, and the family sold everything in their home in Hyerung, so that she could stay alive. But it still wasn’t enough to pay for her medicine needs.
Ms. Yang thought that life would be easier for her parents if they didn’t have to pay for her medicine. She watched their continual sorrow. Seeing her parents suffer was torment for her, and it was unbearable. In 2002, she made a painful journey across the Tuman River to China. It would have been hard with good health, but her pain followed her everywhere.
She was sold right after she crossed the Tuman River. The man who bought her turned out to be alcoholic and violent. He assaulted her regularly, and she ran away. We don’t know the details of how she met a second “husband”, but we do know that the second man and his mother were abusive, cruel, and hateful. In China, holidays are a time for food, but not for Ms. Yang. Her mother in law refused to let her eat on holidays, and she could not touch any food that was on the table.
Somehow Ms. Yang was able to escape, and found NAUH. She says that her life is too harsh for her to bear, and she wants “to be free of all the chains” that she has experienced.
We at NAUH want to be the ones who wipe her tears, and help her realize her true value.
Please join us in saving one life at a time.
We at NAUH desire to rescue every person who appeals to us for help, but there are times we must turn people down because of lack of funding.
It costs about $2000 USD to save one refugee life.
(Our priority is orphans, women, and men in that order).
