On August 17, the Eugene Bell Foundation (president, Stephen Linton, 인세반) announced that it has received government permission to send medicines and related equipment for treatment of 1,000 multidrug-resistant tuberculosis patients in North Korea. The shipment will take place this coming November and in May next year. South-North government relations have been cut off, but civil organizations persevere in their support for North Korea.
