Dedicating over 50 years to the good of the country

Everyone has someone to respect and copy in their life.

Kim Ae Sun, a 61-year-old woman living in neighbourhood unit No. 32, Hanggu-dong, Hanggu District, Nampho City, said that her father Kim Hong Ju regarded an ordinary farmer as the model of his life and existence.

Kim Hong Ju was a worker at the then Songchon prospecting corps in South Phyongan Province. During his business trip in January 1971, he happened to get familiar with a farmer, who presented to the country crops he had grown more every year. He thought of the farmer’s deed while seeing him. After coming back home, he held a family meeting and proposed that each of his nine family members do good things for the country every month.

Since then, his family members have sent money they earned through animal husbandry and sideline farming to major construction sites.

At that time, Kim was a teenager.

Though she could not fully understand what doing good things for the country meant, the image of her father settled in her heart more proudly and she actively helped her parents.

Even after she grew up and got married, she continued doing good things for the country.

She volunteered to be a member of the night support shock brigade at the construction site of the West Sea Barrage and sent aid materials to construction sites including dwelling house construction project.

Over 50 years passed that way.

In the period, she has consoled flood victims who suffered natural disaster, encouraged builders who turned out in reconstruction campaigns and took good care of the health recovery of special-class disabled soldiers.

People unanimously say that Kim Ae Sun is a woman who puts affairs of the state before her household affairs and finds pleasure in devoting herself to unfortunate persons.

She celebrated her 60th birthday in January last year.

Although she wanted to celebrate her birthday quietly, a lot of people came to her house to express their warm gratitude to her pure devotion.

“It is the human obligation and feature of our society to live helping one another forward. The affection and gratitude many people show me are too deep for what I have done. I have nothing to desire if my sincerity gives a little help to the country and our harmonious society,” she added.
