Severe Food Shortages in North Korea – Christian Committees Mobilize Efforts

Apr 28, 2003 02:34 PM EDT

The United Nations reports that the food shortage in North Korea is far worse than originally thought. In partnership with other groups, the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee sent more than 20 million dollars' worth of food to North Korea. They are also helping local farmers get items needed to increase future food production. The CRWRC is a relief and development arm of the Christian Reformed Church working to create permanent, positive change in Christ's name.
