Help Get Funds for North Korean Citizens

This petition had 98 supporters

The issue between the United States and North Korea is prominent in today's media, however, people only focus on the nuclear weapons and bombs. People do not realize that the citizens that reside in North Korea are innocent, and it is only the dictator that is bad. This petition will help get funds for North Korean citizens who are currently famished and do not have basic necessities. This change will help get North Koreans the things they need. As Canadians, we need to help out in every way we can, and this is one of the ways.

In North Korea, 40% of the population are below the poverty line, and 70% of them are currently malnourished, which translates to around 24 million people. Most, if not all of the current funds are going towards their nuclear program, and the aftereffect is that North Koreans are now suffering from malnutrition and various diseases. Workers who are required to do laborious jobs only get paid around 2-3$ per month. They can't buy much with this, and has resulted in thousands of deaths.

North Koreans are currently thriving off of donations. Their leader is not providing them with any support, and so we need to step in to lend aid. By signing this petition, you are letting Oxfam know about the situation in North Korea, and are lending them your aid.

Thank you for your support.
