Agricultural Support to North Korea

 

Greenhouses
Central to recovery from malnutrition and disease is nutritious food to eat. CFK has provided hundreds of small, medium and large greenhouse kits to help rural places grow vegetables year round. This work began in 1997 when 5 prototype greenhouses designed by Dr. John Wilson, were taken to North Korea as the first stage of a program to provide tools for growing more food. In November of that year 200 more were delivered. Since then we have continued sending and building greenhouses at specific facilities throughout the provinces we support. Over time our greenhouses have evolved and improved, including many small heat retention modifications, and becoming larger and much more efficient.
 North Koreans are using them to grow spinach, lettuce, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, melons and other vegetables, rich in vitamins and minerals, vital to patients’ health. The vegetables combined with the donated food including canned meat, TB medicine, and other care enables 85-90% of patients treated at the hospitals and rest homes to be cured and returned healthy to their homes, families and communities. Other agricultural assistance includes tractors and cargo tricycles, irrigation and inoculants to improve yields and to make food production more efficient.
