Inside North Korea

Last week my dad and a delegation from Samaritan’s Purse visited the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, better known as North Korea, to discuss the country’s agricultural, medical, and food needs.

A terrible winter destroyed many crops last year, and millions of people will be affected by the food shortage this year.  Along with our team from Samaritan’s Purse, was Greta Van Susteren.

Across from the China border, they had a donation ceremony of rolls of plastic to help protect the rice farms.

I guess my dad decided to give it a try.

Over the last 10 years, Samaritan’s Purse continues to build a relationship with DPRK and draw attention to the needs that need to be met.
