TNKR will be holding a birthday fundraiser for Hwang Cheol (his birthday this year will be on October 21). He is the South Korean man whose father was abducted to North Korea in 1969 after a North Korean agent hijacked an airplane. Mr. Hwang has been lobbying for years to have his father released.
He has had help from other organizations and individuals over the years, but it is hard to maintain this kind of campaign long-term. TNKR joined up with him in early 2016 after he spoke at an event we co-sponsored with Justice for North Korea and TJWG: Transitional Justice Working Group 전환기 정의 워킹그룹.
Would you like to help organize a party for this important cause? Contact Youngmin Kwon, project manager of the Bring My Father Home campaign to find a way for you to get involved.
You can donate to my fundraiser or set up your own in support of this campaign. No amount is too small (5,000 won? 10,000 won?); any donation to Mr. Hwang’s campaign will let him know that others care about this.
If that link is difficult then TNKR also has a PayPal account to receive donations.
