While the rest of the world's attention is riveted on North
Korea and its claims of a successful nuclear test, LFNKR would
like to point again to the many North Korean refugees and their
continuing need for help.
LFNKR, since its founding in 1998, has provided North Korean
refugees with aid, specifically distributing food and clothing
through local staff. For more information about LFNKR's activities
during 2006 and its plans for 2007, see these pages:

Many North Korean refugees still need help. LFNKR has launched
a campaign aimed at supplying home medical first-aid kits to
help North Korean refugees in the event of illness.
It is a frightening fact that North Korean defectors who have
escaped into China and are hiding there cannot go to hospitals
when illness strikes. Each emergency kit includes antipyretics,
pain killers, antibiotics, intestinal remedies, and other OTC
medicines. LFNKR plans to supply 300 of these kits during this
next fiscal year.
Every donation of twenty dollars provides one medical kit to
help North Korean refugees who face sickness. We invite you to
join our campaign to provide these home medical kits.
