John Littleton, our Asia regional manager and Rachel Bentley, our Director, have just returned from a visit to North Korea. They flew into Yanji, China and crossed over the Chinese/DPRK border into Rason city.
The visit went smoothly and they learned a lot about the situation in just a few days. It's a fascinating country and they met some very interesting people. John was also able to spend some time in the neighbouring North Hamgyong Province which contrasted greatly to the Rason special economic zone.
Rachel and John have connected with some helpful people and organisations with the hope that at some point Children on the Edge can visit North Hamgyong Province again to undertake some work there.
The photo shows John and Rachel standing beneath the portraits of the great leaders Kim II Sung and Kim Jong il.
