No one was trustworthy
Being a merchant was not good enough to feed her son. There were times she had to choose either food, or wood fuel for heating up their home. It was just too difficult for her to maintain the household.
Furthermore, the school her son was attending started demanding all kinds of materials which she could not afford to provide.
She decided to flee to China with her son, and finally implemented on their plan last spring.
They crossed the Aprok River, and climbed up, and down countless mountains for months. The most of time, they were in the mountains hiding.
They have reached NAUH’s safe home last week. We wondered how they were able to survive in the woods. Ms. Kim said “Of course we were nervous, and scared of the howling, and growling sound of wild animals. But we were more scared of people who might report us to the police.”
To their knowledge, being discovered by human means to be sent back to North Korea. It was a heart breaking to hear the full length of the story.
We wish their precious lives will be blessed, and no more hardships in their future.
