Hanawon, the Korea Hana Foundation, and the Korea Suicide Prevention Center sign a business agreement
- Building cooperation for the prevention of suicide by North Korean defectors and for the creation of a culture of respect for life –

□ On October 27, 2020, the Settlement Support Center for North Korean Refugees (Hanawon headed by Lee Joo-tae) and the Korea Hana Foundation (President Jung In-sung) under the Ministry of Unification signed a business agreement on the prevention of suicide by North Korean defectors and respect for life with the Korea Suicide Prevention Center (headed by Paik Jong-woo).

 o The heads of the three institutions participated in the signing ceremony, which was very small-scale in compliance with enhanced social distancing measures.

* The Korea Suicide Prevention Center was established in April, 2012 in line with the Act on the Prevention of Suicide and the Creation of Culture of Respect for Life to prevent suicide and expand the culture of respect for life nation-wide.

□ In the agreement, the three institutions agreed to cooperate for the prevention of suicide by North Korean defectors and the creation of a culture of respect for life, including business cooperation and support for education on suicide prevention; mutual support for the prevention of suicide and the expansion of a culture of respect for life; and exchange of contents and human resources for education on suicide prevention.

 o Hanawon will do its best to ensure that each and every North Korean defector becomes a ‘life keeper’ and stably settles down in society while working closely with the Korea Hana Foundation and the Korea Suicide Prevention Center.
