The July campaign, dreaming of a society that is willing to help North Koreans
[The July campaign, dreaming of a society that is willing to help North Koreans]
The week-long rain stopped and the sky cleared last Saturday. We were worried if we could carry out the campaign without problems because the rainy season has started and there is the influence of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). But we could be relieved as the sky became clear.
On the last Saturday of July, NAUH campaigned as usual at Seoul Station for raising the awareness of North Korea human rights. An elderly man in his eighties stopped on his way and told us the story of his hometown in the North. He also encouraged us to keep doing good things. There was also a citizen who brought us bottles of beverage as a gesture of encouragement. Someone raised his thumb as he passed by us. Some other person exchanged nods with us to show his support. We sincerely thank you all for the heartfelt encouragement.
NAUH acts today as well dreaming of a society that is willing to help North Koreans in need.
[북한주민들의 어려움에 손 내밀 수 있는 사회를 꿈꾸며]
한 주 동안 쏟아지던 비가 그치고 맑게 개인 하늘이 반가운 날 입니다. 코로나19와 장마의 영향으로 캠페인을 진행 할 수 있을까 노심초사했던 마음까지도 함께 밝아지는 듯 했는데요.
여든을 넘기신 한 어르신은 가던 길도 멈추신 채, 이북고향의 이야기를 전해주시며 수고한다고 좋은 일 한다고 힘껏 격려해주셨습니다. 이외에도 음료를 한아름 담아와 전해주시던 시민분과 감사합니다, 엄지 척, 목례 등 마음을 담아 격려 해 주신 모든 분들께 감사드립니다.
북한주민들의 어려움에 손 내밀 수 있는 사회를 꿈꾸며, 북한인권단체 나우(NAUH)는 오늘도 행동합니다.
