On July 31, 2015 PSCORE hosted a Speaker’s Event with the honor of having Ms. Jo Geum-Ok give the audience a glimpse of her life as a North Korean defector who has been repatriated back to North Korea five tims. Through her tough journey, she had to endure near death torture, human trafficking, rape, and desperation that drew her near suicide.
What was most touching about this event was the amount of foreign attendance. The outcome was truly a testament of how the international community is being exposed more and more to the North Korean human rights issues and are sympathizing with the victims.
PSCORE would like to thank every one, especially other North Korea defectors, who came out to support this strong woman as she retells her tragic tale and all the donations that were given. In total we fundraised over 30% of expected amount through attendance, donations and merchandise!
Once again, PSCORE thanks all the guests for their support and attendance, making this one of PSCORE’s most successful speaker’s event this year!
