The Ton-a-Month Club is a Christian non-profit famine-relief program, based in Seoul, Korea, which has been mobilizing food aid for the most needy civilian casualties of the North Korean famine since the second half of 1996. Our organization targets its aid to the most vulnerable segments of the North Korean society: children under age 6, orphaned children, single mothers with children, the elderly, and the handicapped.
We accomplish this by using various delivery systems, including direct shipment to North Korean made by our own volunteers. Our policy is to utilize whichever delivery system that can provide the lowest price/per ton of nutritious foods and can guarantee the most accurate and transparent mode of monitoring food shipments. We have recently expanded our services to include assistance and shelter to North Koreans who have fled to other countries to escape privation in their own country.
