April 25, 1998: The World Day of Fasting for the People of North Korea
in San Francisco and around the world
Since 1995, natural disasters and economic
collapse have ravaged North Korea, leaving its 23 million people
to contend with widespread famine and disease. Adults survive on just a few
ounces of food per day, children nationwide suffer from malnutrition, and
many of the elderly are reported to have simply 'disappeared.' Currently,
food stocks from last year's harvest and international aid supplies are dangerously low;
meanwhile, there is a great need for medicines and other basic supplies.
...And Our Response
Hunger Relief Fund volunteers at the San Francisco Food Bank, 11/97
The Hunger Relief Fund for North Korea,
a San Francisco Bay Area group of students, professionals, and community
workers, has held public events and volunteered locally since 1996.
The group has raised over $100,000, sending tons of seed, rice, medicine
and other aid to families in need, while raising awareness within the Bay
Area and United States about this important issue.
Your help is needed!
Please read on to find out more about the crisis and learn how you can
donate, raise funds, or volunteer in your community to fight the famine
