North Korea Peace- Balloon Launch

In North Korea nearly one quarter of the population is starving. Most international food aid is confiscated by the government and never reaches civilians. Starving and isolated, they are left without help, and without hope.

One pair of socks can be sold to purchase about 10 kilos of corn, enough to feed an adult for one month. The group North Korea Peace, led by Juseong Lee (a North Korean defector) and Sunnie Kim, meets once a month to send weather balloons bearing socks and messages of hope across the border into North Korea.
