Mission East is a Danish international relief and development organisation, working in Eastern Europe and Asia. Our aim is to deliver relief aid, to create and support long-term development projects and to empower local aid organisations to carry on the work independently. Making no racial, religious or political distinction between those in need, we aim to assist the most vulnerable.
Preparing for food Distribution to Munchon City
Mission East is preparing for its second emergency food distribution in North Korea this year. We will be distributing Maize and a food supplement mixture of essential vitamins, minerals and proteins to over 11,000 young children at 42 kindergartens and 56 nurseries in Munchon City, in the particularly food insecure Kangwon Province, as well as to the provincial paediatric hospital and provincial orphanage. The maize arrived in North Korea at the end of October, and is being transported to this southeastern province for distributions beginning in mid-November. These photos show the preparation and transport of the maize to North Korea, and images from the nurseries, kindergartens and orphanages who will be benefiting from the food.
