North Korea

Right now, North Korea is facing extreme food shortages — food shortages that will only grow worse as we move into the fall and winter months. And when crisis hits, kids in orphanages are always hit hardest — experiencing inescapable cold, malnutrition, even starvation.

For the 2,300 children you feed in orphanages in North Korea, this is a truly dangerous and urgent situation. But, it costs less than $1 per day to feed a child in North Korea — and you have a unique opportunity to deliver food and winter aid directly to a child in need today!

Your generous gift will save lives by sending food, coats, blankets and medicine directly to an orphaned child to keep them safe and warm during North Korea's long winter, when temperatures often dip below zero.

But please hurry! The next truck of supplies leaves for North Korea on the last day of the month! Please help fill it as full as possible for kids in need!

How The Food Is Delivered

At the invitation of the North Korean government, we've provided emergency relief to children in North Korea for 19 years. We've developed a safe and reliable way to ensure that lifesaving supplies travel directly from our partner in China into the hands of children and caregivers at five orphanages. In warehouses on the Chinese border to North Korea, Holt's partners prepare food shipments of bagged grains, corn and other essentials — sometimes including medicine, warm clothing and toiletries — which are then loaded onto trucks and driven directly to our orphanage partners in North Korea.
