Water is heavy when it must be carried

Kim Juyang Hui lives with her husband and their son in one of the houses that were built after the typhoon in 2012 with help from Mission East. Now the family has also clean water available.

When there is a half hour walk to fetch clean water, you often compromise with proper hygiene. Juyang Hui from North Korea had to walk half an hour twice a day to reach the nearest well and fetch water for her family. The 34-year-old woman lives with her husband and eight-year-old son in the village of Sony outside Kujang.

En kamp mod sult og sygdom i verdens mest lukkede land

Trillingerne Sun, Gun og Puk er anbragt på børnehjemmet, fordi myndighederne ikke mener, at børnenes forældre kan tage sig af tre små børn og samtidig passe deres arbejde på cementfabrikken. Når en mor i Nordkorea får trillinger, ender børnene altid på børnehjem de første fire år af deres liv. Trillingerne elsker det nye legetøj fra Mission Øst, fortæller en af børnehjemmets medarbejdere.

Nordkorea er kendt som verdens mest lukkede samfund, og befolkningen lider under handelsblokader, tørke og mangel på basale fornødenheder. Mission Øst har som den eneste danske organisation fået adgang til landet for at hjælpe den hårdt prøvede befolkning. Få et overblik over arbejdet her.
