Frosten truer 11-årige Kang i Nordkorea

Flere end 200.000 børn og voksne i Nordkorea går en iskold vinter i møde uden et sted at varme sig. Oversvømmelser har ødelagt deres huse og gjort mange hjemløse.

Project Background: 

Baggrund:

Mission East has been supporting three provincial orphanages in Haeju City, the capital of South Hwanghae Province with food assistance for a period of 6 months as part of a previous project. Despite our interventions, and the work of some other agencies to help these children, their health and nutrition status remains poor and there are many signs that they have a very low quality of life. Children in the 'Baby Home' for 0-5 years are in particularly dire conditions which may be life-threatening for some of these young children. Mission East wishes to provide further material assistance, accompanied by training and more intensive monitoring over the period of one year to try to achieve a lasting difference in the lives of these children. 

Project Aims: 

Projektmål: 

To improve the physical and mental health status of children living in orphanage institutions in Haeju City through an improved quality of life.

1. Improved nutritional status of children at the orphanages - through providing supplementary maize and soy beans, constructing greenhouses, providing animals for milk and eggs, carrying out more intensive growth monitoring and providing training.

2. Improved psycho-social stimulation - through providing toys and educational materials, together with training on child psychological development and age-appropriate activities.

Project Background: 

Baggrund:

Heavy rainfall, typhoons and thunderstorms have caused serious damage across the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) during the months of July and August 2012. Flooding has affected 61 counties in 10 provinces throughout the country, and is particularly serious in North and South Pyongan Provinces. According to government data of the damages across the country as of 3 August, 60,096 households were affected by flooding, killing 169 people and leaving 212,204 homeless. Considerable farmland was destroyed and 41 water supply sources were damaged. Since these figures were released, a second bout of flooding and Typhoon Bolaven struck in August causing additional deaths, displacing tens of thousands, and destroying more homes and farmland.
 
On August 27-28, Mission East visited two of the country’s most severely affected counties in North and South Pyongan Provinces. We were able to visit flood-damaged areas, interview local residents and speak with local authorities about the damages in their counties. Elderly people in both counties said this was the worst flooding they had ever seen in their lifetime. In Kujang County of North Pyongan, 81 people died and 281 were injured; and 601 houses were totally destroyed leaving 3,200 people homeless. In Songchon County of South Pyongan, 60 people died and 68 were injured; and 5,600 homes were partially or completely damaged, affecting 10,900 people.
 
Authorities in both counties are now prioritizing providing adequate housing for the homeless before winter starts, but little work has yet been done towards this. Fuel shortages and lack of machinery make construction efforts difficult and few construction supplies are locally available. Local authorities state that the central government does not have the capacity to assist them and that the damages across the country are too much for the government to address alone. 

Project Aims: 

Projektmål:

To assist flood-affected populations in North Korea to be able to meet their basic need for shelter following severe flood damages. 

Nordkorea

Handling:

This project will contribute to recovery and rebuilding efforts in severely flood-affected areas of North Korea. The project will construct new houses for those whose homes were destroyed by the flooding in July-August 2012.
