Let's get to work!

North Koreans who flee their country can be captured, returned, and tortured. We can help.

Donate to help North Korean refugees reach freedom through a 3,000-mile modern-day underground railroad.

North Koreans are risking their lives to escape across the border into China, but even there they are not safe. Chinese authorities seek out, capture, and send refugees back to North Korea. When North Koreans are forcibly returned they can be subject to brutal punishments by the regime.


This is why we are on the ground helping North Korean refugees escape out of China. We provide rescues through a 3,000-mile modern-day underground railroad through China and into Southeast Asia. Once out of China, refugees can resettle to safe and free countries like South Korea or the United States.
