  2. Ki-Won was the first refugee rescued from TheHundred Campaign. If you want to be involved in helping us rescue the remaining 100 visit linkglobal.org/thehundred/
    Ki-Won is 75 years old. Born in China after his parents fled North Korea during Japanese colonization, he returned to North Korea in his 20s and married Hayoung a year later. In his 60s, Ki-Won escaped to China with Hayoung to find food.

    Since Ki-Won had been out of China – his birthplace – for 40 years, the Chinese government denied him citizenship, so the couple hid in the underground for over 10 years until LiNK brought them out into our Southeast Asia shelter.
