An estimated 5% of people in North Korea are disabled. They are a significant community.  For disabled children between the ages of 8 to 17, they  have the choice of 11 schools: 8 for the deaf, 3 for the blind.
There are no boarder constraints on aiding the disabled. This means that it is our responsibility as a world-wide community to help. With our support, these children can enjoy art, music, dance; to be able to experience joy and hope as every child deserves. It is my and your duty to make a difference; to work together and build towards an equal society of opportunities.

Yours sincerely
