I miss my brother!

2019-12-11 12:28

In late 80s, Ms. Oh was born in Heasan, Yangkangdo. Oh’s mom had a heart condition of which she still does not know the specific diagnosis of it. As she turned 17 years old, her sick mom passed away. Losing mom at 17 was unbearably painful.

She had a father, and an older brother who worked all day to feed her. However, because of the great famine, their labor did not guarantee wages, nor food distribution they were promised.

Starvation was now a part of her life. She thought to herself that she would die of starvation someday.

Courageously, she decided to cross the Aprok River in winter of 2006. On one of the coldest day, the human traffickers near the border sold her to a Chinese man 9 years older than her. She was just a teenager, but was forced into marriage.

For 13 years, she was scared of her husband and, moreover, instability of her legal status.

We cannot reveal the specifics of her escape. She did flee from her Chinese husband’s home, and came to our safe house last week. She said that “I wanted to call my family who lives in North Korea, but it was not possible for 13 years.”

NAUH’s rescue team wish to provide her needs, and pray for the life ahead of her.

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 463 lives.
