Samaritan's Purse may suspend work in N. Korea after attack

Published on 24 November 2010

One of the few aid agencies working in North Korea says it may be forced to suspend operations in the destitute country if Pyongyang's surprise attack on a South Korean island deters donors as some experts fear. (..) WFP's executive director Josette Sheeran, who visited North Korea this month, said the agency was worried about the lack of funding. "I saw a lot of children already losing the battle against malnutrition," she said after her trip. "Their bodies and minds are stunted and so we really feel the need there."
