Rescue Stories

"I am a sole survivor."

2019-11-13 17:09

Ms. Yang is a sole survivor of a family whose every member died of starvation in Hyorung, Hamkyungbookdo. She was born in late1980s, and few years after her birth, the great famine hit the country heavily. The whole nation was going through such horrendous trouble that the basic education was barely provided during the season of the great famine. She tried to be a street vendor to earn just a little to survive, but it wasn’t easy at her location where the free travel is restricted always. In addition to that, one day all her belongings were confiscated by the police without any given reason. She had no choice, but to flee to China in order to survive. She crossed the Tuman River in the spring of 2017.

She was sold to one of the poorest Chinese man in that region. Her life did not turn out the way she imagined, and the painful physical assault was hard to endure.

When she was in North Korea, she thought that if she crosses over the River, her sorrowful life would end there. However, her life did not get any better nor become what she expected. NAUH’s rescue team welcomed her to our safe house, and we pray for her safe, and pleasant settlement in South Korea. Thank you for your loving heart toward North Koreans, maybe the neediest people in the world.


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)

Because of your love, we are saving one life at a time;

NAUH has partnered with you so far to give freedom to 458 lives.
