This #givingtuesday we are looking to raise $2,000 to pay for one safehouse for North Korean refugees in 2018.
This safehouse will act as a central hub for most of the refugees in our network. They will use this house to hide from the Chinese police, flee from abusive husbands or to meet and make plans on how to support one another.
Over the past five years, Crossing Borders has greatly expanded our network. In 2014, we had 13 North Korean refugees in our network. As of the writing of this post, we have 139 women. Thanks to your generosity, our budget increased almost three times from $120k to $300k in 5 years.
The math is simple, the more money that we raise, the greater our capacity to help North Korean refugees is. You can contribute to our safehouse project until Monday, December 4 at midnight, so please be generous and consider making a gift. Click here and select “Safehouse”
Any funds raised above $2,000 will roll over to pay for the following year’s rent. If this program ends, funds will be placed in our general fund.
There are many ways to give. Donate directly (one time or monthly recurring) and you can also give through your Amazon shopping via Smile
