The political climate surrounding North Korea is dynamic, and has experienced significant changes since we began serving children there in 1998. Always, over the past two decades, we have worked diligently to ensure your donations are effectively meeting the needs of the orphaned and vulnerable children we serve together with you in North Korea. As an additional safeguard, we are currently undertaking a comprehensive review of our program. To better facilitate this, we are temporarily holding off on sending our shipments of food and supplies across the North Korean border until we have completed our review.

Through the compassion and generosity of donors like you, we continue our work strengthening families, caring for orphans, and helping children grow and thrive in 14 other countries around the world. Visit to learn how you can help a child in urgent need today!
