North Korea

Aid organization Cap Anamur helps the needy population in rural areas.

The current famine in North Korea hits the orphans and the rural population particularly hard. During the past winter, large parts of the harvest were frozen to pieces; As early as May, the food supplies were running low. The situation remains threatening for almost 5 million people until the next harvest. In May 2011 I was able to work as a »documentarist« for the aid organization Cap Anamur (for whom I have been working as a photographer for 26 years) accompany the distribution of the first 200 tons of rice. I was allowed into people's homes, visited orphanages, schools and hospitals and was able to take photos!

Cap-Anamur-Managing Director Bernd Göken has just returned to North Korea to oversee the distribution of the next delivery of over 1000 tons of rice and to ensure that the food is distributed directly to those in need.
