Our mission is to show the compassion of Christ
to North Koreans and their children.


Crossing Borders is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to helping North Korean refugees who cross the border into China for food and medical assistance. 

We are a faith-based organization devoted to helping these refugees and their children live safe, healthy and productive lives. We openly share the Christian faith with the refugees that we help but it is not required for them to believe what we believe.


Refugee Care

Crossing Borders ensures North Korean refugees’ safety, provides spiritual counseling, medical care and issues micro loans. And that is just the beginning.

Orphan Care

We support children whose North Korean mothers have been sent back to North Korea or have abandoned them. We do this in two ways: holistic support or family support.
