On the Road: North Korea

We're fighting hunger, come with us


Lena Savelli offers us a rare glimpse inside the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), a country off limits to all but a handful of foreign visitors every year. The imposing monuments of Pyongyang belie the country's harsh living conditions, which have left one in three women and children prey to chronic hunger. Lena takes us from the port where WFP food aid arrives from around the world to the specialized clinics where malnourished children are brought in for treatment.
