Oxfam Hong Kong assisting DPRK

The Pyongyang Times reports that Oxfam Hong Kong is providing farming assistance to the DPRK:

Oxfam Hong Kong is increasing aid to the DPRK’s agricultural sector.

The Hong Kong charity founded in 1976 is dedicated to helping victims of famine and natural disasters and is engaged in rendering humanitarian aid and education.

It has been giving aid to the DPRK since 1997.

In recent years it has supplied farming materials and food on several occasions via the Korean Committee for Promotion of International Trade to the Ryonghyon Cooperative Farm in Suan County, North Hwanghae Province and other farms.

The farms and the KCPIT are very grateful to the Hong Kong charity for their kind-hearted aid and hope for a wider range of relief activities.

The Oxfam Hong Kong webpage is here. I cannot find any information on their projects in the DPRK.
