S Korean aid group to send food aid to N Korea
Seoul: A private South Korean aid group said Friday it has been given a nod for food aid to the Democratic People`s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
The group, called the Korea Association of People Sharing Love, plans to send bread and baby food worth 59 million won (54,086 US dollars) to the DPRK`s northwestern city of Shinuiju in three months.
The permission was granted by South Korea`s unification ministry, which oversees inter-Korean relations including humanitarian affairs.
Despite suspended cross-border exchanges following 2010 border clashes, the ministry recently allowed a number of local private organizations to send aid to the DPRK to help the country recover from flood damage.
