Last week a delegation of the Community of Sant'Egidio went to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to bring humanitarian aid. During the mission they visited a home for the elderly in Sungho, in the province of Pyongyang, and an orphanage in Pyongsong, in the province of South Pyongan.
Great welcome from the elders, who expressed gratitude for the visit. The director of the orphanage Pyongsong, where the children had the opportunity to wear the traditional dress of the party, thanked the community for the aid, which is essential to supplement the diet of children.
It is the second mission of Sant'Egidio in support of vulnerable groups of the Korean population.
