In the midst of the political turmoil and economic impact of a divided Korea, many people in the North are suffering and struggling to meet their basic needs. The Outreach Foundation is committed to working with church and Christian partners to address the need for food. One partner with whom we have worked is the Bong Su Bread Factory, a project of the Korean Christians Federation, the official Protestant church in North Korea. Friends from abroad buy flour in China and ship it to the Church in North Korea. The church-run bread factory bakes the bread, then it is distributed to children’s homes. The Rev. Choon Lim, who is the Regional Liaison for East Asia for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), helps us to identify the best ways to make a difference in the lives of hurting people when we have resources available to share. Originally from North Korea himself, Choon Lim sees this mission as a way of building a bridge of love through the North Korean Church between Christians in the United States and South Korea and the people of North Korea.

The Impact

By connecting with brothers and sisters in Christ who are reaching into North Korea to serve the poor and the hungry, you are responding to the One who says, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father… for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” (Matthew 25:34-36)

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 to provide food for children in North Korea.
