CFK at Work in North Korea

The work of CFK has always been in response to needs that we see and requests that we receive. With tuberculosis, hepatitis, and pediatric facilities being the primary focus of the ministry, you will see that most of our aid is targeted to respond to the medical needs of the nation in some form. We regularly assist tuberculosis facilities in a multifaceted way by providing:

  • commercial size greenhouses, tractors, seeds, and other supplies to help the staff at these facilities grow vegetables and greens year round to improve patient health and nutrition
  • general medicines and vitamins needed to cure TB and treat other ailments that TB/hepatitis patients suffer from such as fever, cough, and digestive problems
  • basic hospital equipment and supplies needed by these facilities to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis/hepatitis
  • food provided by our partners the Mennonite Central Committee, Christian Aid Ministries, and others
  • hospital and rest home renovations and technical upgrades to help improve the quality of patient care and increase the skill level and abilities of the health workers
  • blankets, quilts, hats and other handmade goods to help patients stay warm
  • doctor’s kits filled with stethoscopes, BP cuffs, thermometers, and other instruments and supplies needed to diagnose and treat patients

This is currently a brief overview of what the ministry encompasses, but we are always open to the will of the Father and ready to move as He moves.

Words of Truth

Hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
