How North Korea’s First Paralympian Made it to London

Mr. Robert Glover, OBE, is the executive director Care for Children, which he founded in 1998 in Shanghai, China. Since then, Care for Children has gained the support of the Chinese government, helped around 250,000 orphans find families, and recently expanded into Thailand.  Now it has become involved with North Korea at the London Olympics.

NK News visited Mr. Glover in his office in Norwich, UK, to discuss his charity which remarkably has made agreements with the North Korean government to take the project there. Care for Children has also paid for the first, and only, North Korean paralympian, a swimmer named Rim Ju Song, to come to the UK to compete.
