I came across an article in the Weekly Standard. It was about Thor Halvorssen, who founded the Human Rights Foundation (HRF). The article provided background information about Halvorssen and it discussed how he wants set the people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea free.
The article discussed how Halvorssen and his team have conducted activities such as figuring out ways to smuggle essential goods to the people of North Korea and conducting hackathons for defectors, as well as using unmanned balloons that contain cash and anti-regime leaflets. Not only that, but the HRF has focused on raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to help defector groups in North Korea.
