About This Fundraiser

Hello, this is Sharon Jang.
I defected from North Korea in 2011 and entered South Korea in 2012.I lived in a place that can be described as hell on earth.

I worked in the Aoji Coal Mine.

I worked 14 to 15 hours a day as a teenage girl in a dark and scary place.

I saw my fellow miners die when tunnels collapsed. I am still angry at the memory of working there.

Previously, I could only talk about what I saw and experienced. But now, beyond the story, we are starting a fundraising activity to help more people tell their stories.

People know that North Korea is a place without human rights.

I am joining this fundraising campaign with the hope that more North Korean defectors could share their voices.

Please join us so that many North Korean defectors can speak their own voices.

안녕하세요 샤론장입니다.
저는 2011년도에 탈북하여 2012년도에 한국에 입국하였습니다.
제가 살던곳은 저에게는 고향이면서도 지옥입니다.
저는 그곳에서 아오지탄광에서 일을 했습니다.
하루에 14~15시간을 어둡고 무서운 곳에서 10대 여자의 몸으로 일을 했습니다.
갱도가 무너져 사람이 죽어도 그곳에서 일을했던기억에 지금도 화가 납니다.
하지만 제가 할수 있는것은 오로지 제가 본 것과 경험한것들을 이야기 하는 것뿐이였습니다.
그러나 지금은 이야기를 넘어 더많은 사람들이 이야기에 동참할수 있도록 돕기 위해 모금활동을 시작하게 되었습니다.
모두가 아시다시피 북한은 인권이 없는 곳입니다.
저는 이범 모금활동을 통해 더많이 탈북민들이 한목소리를 낼수있었으면 하는 마음으로 동참하게 되었습니다.
많은 탈북민들이 각자의 목소리를 낼수 있도록 동참해주세요.
