The UN should provide relief to the people of North Korea every chance we get. The people there suffer show much and it would be a rare opportunity to offer kindness to these people. Perhaps it would start to open the door to a more free society. The change in North Korea has to start somewhere and charity might be a good start.
Yes, the UN should get more involved with humanitarian issues in North Korea. The latest appeal from North Korea for flood relief is a clear indication that the North Korean government needs assistance and the UN should help out. The UN should demand more information from North Korea about other ways the people of North Korea need assistance like food, education, and other opportunities for more fulfilling lives.
North Korea's rare public appeal for flood relief could lead to an unexpected opening for further dialog after help is given. Most countries have made an exception to supplying aid to hostile government in cases of humanitarian crisis and North Korea should not be an exception. The UN should send aid to North Korea for flood relief.
Everyone deserves help in their time of need and it should not be limited by the type of goverment they live under. This could also be an opportunity for people to leave North Korea and could be a step towards toppling the totaltarian regime that has ruled the country if handled well.
