How You Can Help

Hepatitis Pilot Project 간염 시범 사업

Hepatitis Clinic/Training Staff

Skilled professionals travel with CFK to conduct Hepatitis Clinics, examining patients and overseeing diagnostic testing for Hepatitis B as well as training doctors and lab staff.

Skilled Worker for Lab Renovations

Rapid developments have been made in the past year in our hepatitis B diagnostic and treatment initiative. Our goal is to build a model program that can be expanded later to more patients and other locations in North Korea, to train local physicians to diagnose and treat this deadly disease, and to bring hope and healing into a space that has been utterly hopeless for far too long. Working side-by-side with the hospital staff and our local colleagues, our team of skilled workers completely transform hepatitis hospital labs with reliable electrical supply including multiple solar panels powering a battery bank/invertor system with generator backup), LED overhead lighting, drop ceilings, new doors/windows, clean running water, new cabinets, counter tops, sinks, wall tile, electrical outlets, flooring and a solar-powered laboratory refrigerator. Once the renovation work is completed all the equipment and supplies will be delivered and training of the staff will continue to complete the hepatitis diagnostics.

About This Project

We are working with multiple partners to support long-term access to anti-viral therapies for chronic hepatitis B patients. The medicines suppress the virus and prevent liver damage, preserving both health and life and alleviating considerable suffering.

CFK continues to send ongoing support to hepatitis care centers in the form of food, general medicine, greenhouses, clean water, baseline of support through a new hepatitis pilot project launched in 2016 that we expect will expand over time.

Donations to this project are tax-deductible.

What is CFK?
Christian Friends of Korea is a group of people who are seeking to serve Christ by ministering in His name among the people of North Korea. In recent years, this has been primarily through providing humanitarian aid. We are incorporated in the State of North Carolina and registered as a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit. We are members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and Technical Exchange for Christian Healthcare (TECH).

AlLL GIVING IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE to the extent allowed by law. Financial information about this organization and a copy of its license are available from the NC State Solicitation Licensing Branch at 919.807.2214. The license in not an endorsement by the State.

What does CFK do?
CFK sends humanitarian aid in the form of food, medicine, agricultural supplies, bedding and blankets, medical equipment and supplies, and other needed goods to hospitals and other facilities in North Korea, regularly confirming delivery and distribution of goods sent. We are also involved in multiple health care facilities renovation and re-equipping projects in partnership with DPRK local officials and staff, conduct joint training/technical exchange and respond to specific requests as we are able.

What is CFK's motivation?
In recent days, in particular, some have asked why we are doing this work in North Korea. With all that is going on in the news regarding the political, security, and diplomatic tensions, should the assistance continue?

Our response is simple – as followers of Christ, we are compelled by grace to obey his command to feed the hungry and heal the sick (Matthew 25:31-46). We have a rare opportunity to minister to those who are suffering in North Korea. Each time we visit, we confirm delivery of what we send and learn new needs. As long as we are able to do these things and God provides the means for us to help through His people, we will continue in these efforts. We pray you will partner with us as we seek to serve our Savior and the needs of our brothers and sisters in North Korea.

CFK의 동기/원동력은 무엇인가요?
특히 최근 며칠동안 많은 이들이 왜 저희가 북한에서 이러한 일들을 하고 있는지에 대하여 물어왔습니다. 모든 일들이 정치적, 안보적, 그리고 외교적 긴장에 관하여 화제거리가 되고 있는 상황에서, 이러한 지원이 계속되어야 할까요?

저희의 대답은 간단합니다- 그리스도의 제자들로서, 배고픈자를 먹이고 아픈자를 치료해 주라는 그의 명령에 은혜로써 복종할 수 밖에 없는 것입니다. (마태복음 25:31-46) 저희는 북한에서 고통받는 자들을 섬길 수 있는 이례적인 기회를 가지고 있습니다. 저희는 보낸 물자들을 확인하고 저희가 다시 방문할 때마다 그들의 또 다른 필요에 대하여 알게 됩니다. 저희가 이러한 일들을 할 수 있는 한, 그리고 하나님께서 그의 자녀들을 위해 그들을 돕기위한 물자들을 공급해주시는 한, 이러한 노력들을 계속할 것 입니다. 저희는 여러분들이 저희와 동역자가 되어주심으로써 구원자이신 그리스도를 섬기고 북한에 있는 우리의 형제 자매들의 필요를 채우는 데에 함께해주시기를 기도드립니다.
