160 People Donate Blood and Pieces of Skin to Burnt Woman

Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) — It was in the middle of December last year that Ri Kwang Suk working at the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries was badly poisoned from gas and burnt. When she was taken to the Pyongyang City People’s Hospital No.2, she was in an unconscious and critical condition.

A medical team of the hospital lost no time in treating her. She was brought back to life thanks to the devoted treatment which continued day and night. But it was raised as the most difficult problem to recover the scars of the second- and third-degree burns in various parts of her body. It needs many pieces of skin.

Her colleagues who were working together with her and many people who happened to hear the news from them rushed to the hospital to donate their blood and pieces of skin to her. Those who donated their blood and pieces of skin to the skin transplantation operation totaled more than 160.

Pak Ki Sop, director of the hospital, told KCNA that the beautiful deeds showed the advantage of the socialist society of the DPRK in which all the people form a big family attending leader Kim Jong Il as the father.
