Although this is a complicated issue, there is hope. There are ways to help North Korean refugees who are hiding today and to use your voice to make a difference for the people living in North Korea.

LiNK, or Liberty in North Korea, is an international NGO devoted to the North Korean humanitarian and refugee crisis. LiNK provides protection and aid to North Korean refugees hiding in China and rescues refugees and helps them to reach freedom through a modern-day underground railroad through Southeast Asia. LiNK's global grassroots movement seeks to raise awareness of this crisis and provides a way for the international community to take part in bringing about effective change. 

Here's how to get involved:
Rescuing Refugees
Through "TheHundred" campaign, we rescue North Korean refugees hiding in China and provide them with a way out. They are brought to safety to our shelter in Southeast Asia, where we protect and provide for them until their resettlement.

Support a Shelter
We support orphaned North Korean and stateless children in China, providing them with education, food, transportation and protection. In our Southeast Asia shelter, we assist refugees in their processing for resettlement to South Korea and the United States and begin preparing and educating them during their wait.

Through our "Liberty House" program, we provide educational and financial assistance, and case management services to North Korean refugees we have resettled in the United States and South Korea. Through our communities and networks, we invite them into our families as we also join them in their new lives.

We raise awareness of the North Korean human rights and refugee crisis through national awareness tours and provide opportunities to be directly involved in the issue through our local chapters, which focus on raising awareness in local communities, advocating and fundraising for LiNK's programs.
