Tongil Mom Presents: “I Want To Hug My Child”

Tongil Mom will present the results of research that began in 2018 based on interviews of almost 40 women who defected from North Korea who were forced to leave behind their offspring in China before coming to South Korea, and who also suffered the fate of forced repatriation to North Korea. The event will feature the testimonies of some of the defectors who participated in the survey. The shocking violation of North Korean women is not only happening in North Korea but also in China. It has been well-documented that women who attempt to defect and escape to China are repatriated from China back to North Korea, where they are imprisoned, beaten, tortured, and have forced abortions
