For decades, the totalitarian regime of North Korea has subjected its people to propaganda, intimidation, and starvation. None of this, however, will stop Steven Kim's work to support the people of North Korea.
“A Relentless Faith ,” by Sylvia Yu, in the April 2013 issue of Sojourners magazine, details how Kim endured imprisonment for his efforts to assist refugees from North Korea as they escape to China seeking a better life. His work sheds light on the human rights abuses in North Korea, which are rarely mentioned in the media.
Liberty in North Korea (LiNK), a U.S.-based organization, also seeks to shift the media’s attention away from the politics of North Korea to the stories of the people. The world needs to know the human rights violations occurring in North Korea.
Watch the video below to find out more about the people of North Korea. Read “A Relentless Faith ” to understand their plight, and support LiNK in redefining the public’s perception of North Korea.
