21st December: Staying on the Edge
With Children on the Edge, it’s all in the name. The organisation focuses on children leading forgotten lives in barren, dangerous places. Those without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and out of reach for large overseas agencies.
As a smaller organisation we can often get to places that others can’t reach and tread the path less trodden. This is why they are currently researching opportunities in North Korea.
After a visit to Rason City and North Hamhyong Province by their director and Asia Regional Manager, the charity has connected with some local partners who reach more than 5,500 children in dire need in one of the world’s most isolated and impoverished countries.
in response to the widespread famine in North Korea and in a country which thrives on secrecy, these partners have slowly forged relationships and built trust with key officials and teachers. As a result, they have access into parts of the country, which were previously considered unreachable by any international organisation, and Children on the Edge are planning a strategy of support for 2014.
Watch this space!
