N. Korean defectors have put their lives on the line to pursue freedom. S. Korea is now home to over 30,000 people who had escaped the reclusive state. In spite of achieving their mission and finding a new long-sought home, many of the defectors are experiencing an array of social and economic hurdles. A government report has shockingly revealed that one out of ten deaths among the defectors were caused by suicide.
Marking the lunar new year in 2022, [Peace & Prosperity] looks back on how the government is helping the defectors settle in and assimilate to the society and touches upon the role and commitment our community must pursue moving forward.
