Rescue Missions

North Korean defectors are frequently contacting us at PSCORE asking for help. These people have different backgrounds and needs, but they are all living in hiding and need help right away. Most of the times, they get in touch with us because they fear for their lives and ask us to save them. And so we try. We run refugees rescue missions to China to help North Korean defectors gain access to life saving emergency medical treatment and to guide them through our underground railroad to find refugee in South Korea.

Between 2008 and 2013, through our refugees rescue missions, we successfully rescued nine North Korean refugees trapped in dangerous situations in China. In mid-winter 2014, PSCORE rescued Ji-Eun, an eighteen-year-old girl, from being arrested and repatriated to North Korea. Having lost her shoes during her escape from the DPRK and immobilized by the resulting severe frostbite to her feet, she needed urgent specialized medical care to save her feet. Thanks to generous donors, we could raise more than $5,000 to help Ji-Eun reach South Korea.
