“The life of enormous hardship.”
In late 1980s, Ms. Kim was born in Obong plantation in Hyoryung, Hamkyngbookdo. Her father passed away when she was in mother’s womb. As the great famine hit the nation, things have gotten worse in her family, and the whole nation. Her mother physically could not carry on with the hardship any longer that she passed away with some kind of heart failure as Ms. Kim turned 17 years old. Her misery did not end there, the only sibling she had was her brother, and he was the only person she could trust, and rely on. However, he too died of unknown disease in 2006.
Having no hope, she decided to flee to China for a better life at where she did not experience all the emotional pains of losing not one, but all of her family.
After burying her brother, she crossed the Tuman River, and was sold to a man 10 years older than she was. The first few months apparently went all right, but after those months, he brought a female into the house, then the abuse started. Not understanding the language, she did not understand the full length of what is happening in her life. No matter how hard she pleaded with them for stop beating her, it never seemed to end. It continued mercilessly.
She came to our safe house last week, telling us that “I went through enormous hardship, because I was born in North Korea. I want to live, and being treated as a human being.” in weeping voice.
