WHAT WE DO

Help provide food to the most needy. To help inside North Korea with acute medical needs. To participate in a network of prayer for the country and to share the Good News among those who have never heard. AsiaLink partners are working among in a variety of ministries and areas to help North Koreans.

Newsweek magazine described North Korea as “the worst of the worst”. The few aid workers who remain tell of orphanages crowded with shrivelled babies. The Church has been decimated and persecuted. No one knows how many believers remain. Confidentiality is a must for any Christian ministry in this land. Any North Korean Christian who is known to the authorities will be imprisoned in terrible conditions and many do not survive. Many have already died.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Cost: Various ministries are taking place where reporting and news will be necessarily limited. Suggested amount £25 per month. Medical work is ongoing and needs change. Sometimes hospital beds are required, other times, flatpack greenhouses or medical equipment. Suggested amount £30. Give to N.Korea ministries here. Sign up for regular news here.

PRAY FOR

Ministry among North Koreans is highly risky. Pray God's protection on mission activities every day. Many believers have been imprisoned or executed. Ask God to sustain the North Korean Church and bring grace and growth during this most intense of persecution.
