Aid from the enemy: American and S. Korean NGOs in the DPRK

Since opening up to international humanitarian aid in 1995, North Korea has allowed at least 215 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to run projects in the country. 

These groups come from all over the globe, and have engaged in a diverse range of work, from one-off shipments of material aid to long-term projects aimed at strengthening capacities.
