Ms. Oh was born in early 1980s in Onsung, Hamkyungbookdo. She lost her mom at very young age, then her father got remarried to a woman who abused her physically. This life of terror lasted for years...at the age of 27, she was still living at home with her abuser, the step mom. She thought the only way she could end the abuse was by fleeing to China, so she crossed the Tuman River in the summer of 2008.
Ms. Oh crossed the river with hope for a better life. But life did NOT get better - the man who bought her now forced her to take care of his mentally ill mother. This daily task was so difficult in a very poor Chinese household, and there were so many other difficulties as well.
After so many years of tension and abuse in her childhood home, and now living in despair in China, Ms. Oh had acute gastroenteritis. She felt hopeless. She could see no end to the hardships in her life. Finally, she tried to end her life; we don’t have more details than that.
But when she finally escaped and found NAUH, she told us: “I am not a despised person, I just want to be emancipated from all the past”.
We at NAUH believe that all the individuals we help are worthy and of deep value. We are determined to work harder, and provide everyone with the truth about the people we are aiding - these brave individuals deserve respect, and honor.
