Min-Ji is around ten years old. She was left on the streets in North Korea at a very young age. She has no idea what her real name is or when her real birthday is as she was abandoned well before she learned her name or age. A young man found her frail and ill on the streets in North Korea. He risked his life by sneaking across the border into China hoping his friend would be able to take care of her. His friend nursed Min-Ji back to health but since North Korean refugees are not legally allowed in China she was unable to attend school. Instead, she had to live in hiding. The family wanted her to have access to education and freedom so they asked LiNK to help. The journey out of China and into Southeast Asia was very scary for her, especially since she was so young. Fortunately, we were able to successfully rescue her!
Since arriving in South Korea she has thrived in a loving environment with her new foster parents and their four adopted children. She grew 4 inches in four months and is learning to read, write, and is improving her language skills. Although she is years older than her friends in preschool and inches shorter, Min-Ji and her new family celebrate the victories and progress she’s making every day.
THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MIN-JI’S LIFE AND PROVIDING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR HER TO ENJOY THIS NEW LIBERTY.
