North Korean defector support group to send aid to elderly refugees in South
Emergency relief supplies such as food and hand sanitizer to be delivered to 636 North Korean escapees: Korea Hana

A South Korea-based organization which helps North Korean defectors settle in the country announced its plan on Monday to provide aid materials for elderly refugees suffering from the ongoing threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The announcement is the second in the last month from the Korea Hana Foundation, which in mid-March provided emergency relief supplies to 420 North Korean escapees primarily living in the city of Daegu and elsewhere in North Gyeongsang Province -- the region that has experienced the worst outbreak in the country.
