Manna Mission of Europe Limited
Manna Mission of Europe – founded in 2004 – is a U.K. registered charity organisation.
The main purpose is to help impoverished children, often orphans, in the Najin-Sonbong area and other places (in Pyongyang and far away from the capital). The project Love North Korean Children (LNKC) even started in 2001.
Each bakery has a capacity of feeding 4,000-10,000 children and the staff.
We currently have 26 possible locations for bakeries and orphanages; the construction and opening of such facilities depends on the funds we receive in the future.
Sariwon charity bakery 2012
We reached an agreement with the North Korean government to get the estate for bakeries free of charge. So all the money goes directly towards providing humanitarian assistance. The flour is delivered from neighboring China to save transportation costs.
