It is known that North Korea will supply 7 days’ worth of food and 6 Imyeonsu to the residents of Geomdeok District, South Hamgyeong Province on the Lunar New Year.

A source from Hamgyeongnam-do told Daily NK on the 10th, “The government proclaimed in advance that it will give 5 days’ worth of rice, 2 days’ worth of beans, and 3 hands (6) Limyeonsu to the residents of the workers’ district where Geomdeok Mine is located. There is” he said.

The North Korean authorities previously supplied 10 days’ worth of food, 3 pollacks, and a bottle of alcohol to the residents of the Geomdeok district at the rate of 30% rice and 70% corn during the Lunar New Year, but the distribution was disrupted in the aftermath of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). As a result of this, there have been some residents who did not receive supplies in time.

As the Lunar New Year approached about a month or so from that time, the North Korean authorities commanded that the residents of the Geomdeok district, who suffer from hunger every day, do not suffer from hunger on the day of the Lunar New Year, and that the supply of the holidays is not delayed as during the Lunar New Year.

In this regard, a source said, “The Mining Party Committee emphasized that in relation to the epidemic (Corona 19), supplies should be called out several houses and burned, like the Lunar New Year, but we must strive to provide unconditional supply before the Lunar New Year.”

On the other hand, the Mines Party Committee was convinced that the curved road entering the Geomdeok district was unpaved and unpaved, and the ground was frozen, causing a car accident, so that there would be no problems in the process of bringing supplies for the holidays from other places. They say they are paying all their attention.

Meanwhile, it is reported that the residents of Geomdeok District, who waited blindly for the supply of the Lunar New Year holiday due to difficulties in life, are crying at the saying that less food is delivered than during the Lunar New Year.

A source said, “Residents are crying because they can’t sigh deeply, saying that supplies to be supplied for the Lunar New Year this year are less than half of that of other years.

A source said, “There are many generations in the Geomdeok Mine Workers District where families are starving. The miners worked in the basement at the basement, working in turn and selling a piece of bread 15cm wide and 15cm long, which is a new turn (distributed). I take it home to feed my family.”

In fact, in the current Geomdeok Mine, it is common to see miners running home with bread without washing themselves for families suffering from hunger.

In the midst of this, it is known that miners are fortunate to go to the gang without a break even during the Lunar New Year as the ’90-day battle’ at Geomdeok Mine proceeds. The source explained that the miners want to go to the gang and work on the holiday because they can’t even burn a piece of bread if they take a break.
