Christian charity Open Doors has been told by believers in North Korea that the persecution against them is getting worse. This report comes just after President Trump announced in his State of the Union speech that he will be meeting with North Korea’s leader this month.
Open Doors’ underground workers smuggle food to help keep 60,000 North Korean Christians alive each month, along with medicines, winter clothes, boots and blankets.
There are between 200,000 and 400,000 Christians in North Korea. However, it’s difficult to get an exact figure, as Christians in North Korea must keep their faith completely secret.
Open Doors estimate between 50,000 and 70,000 Christians are imprisoned in labour camps – simply for their faith.
