Korean Red Cross to Send $100,000 to N. Korea for Relief Aid
The Seoul-based Korean Red Cross is planning to send 100-thousand dollars in emergency and relief aid to North Korea where recent torrential rainfall killed and injured hundreds of people.
An official from the Red Cross told Arirang News Monday that the fund will be used to purchase relief items for North Korean flood victims, like tents and sanitation supplies.
The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Pyongyang will be in charge of buying and delivering the aid to the victims.
North Korea says flash floods triggered by torrential rain from late June to late July left more than 550 people dead or missing and well over 200-thousand without homes.
