Not a single mother would have nurtured her child as required by the amount of nutrients age by age.
“Meat, milk, kefir, nutrient powder, sweets and cakes … much to everyone’s surprise, my son gained lots of weight under the warm love of the Party rendered to him every day in a timely manner during nearly 70 days in hospital. In reflection of the hearts of all mothers of the country, I would like to give a big bow of gratitude to our Marshal who gave a new heart, a new appearance to my son whom I as his own mother had given up on.”
This is a paragraph in the visitors’ book written by a military officer’s wife when she was leaving Okryu Children’s Hospital with fully recovered son in her arms.
This is not only the expression of this woman alone but also the unanimous feeling of all people who visit this hospital.
Okryu Children’s Hospital categorizes the patients according to their ages and conditions, for example, from 6 to 24 months or from 2 to 4 years old, and apply different national provisions standard accordingly.
Medical workers here say the following;
Child inpatients are provided with meat and fish on a daily basis, and weak and post-operation patients are fed according to their nutrition conditions. They notice much improvement in their health conditions when they leave the hospital after treatment. Children are leaving this hospital with smiles on their faces and their mothers in tears of gratitude.
They add that people would not know how warm and tender is the love associated with the benefits they are receiving.
With parental affection for children, respected Comrade Kim Jong Un inquired about the amount of subsidiary food to be supplied to hospitals and took all measures to provide the inpatients with subsidiary food exactly according to the national provisions standard, and he also gave detailed instruction to provide them with fruits as well as seasonings including garlic and red pepper.
Thus, it has now become a common practice in the hospitals to give priority to the supply of food for inpatients.
Moreover, he made sure that material and technical foundations of the public health sector are increasingly consolidated so as to give full play to the advantages of socialist public health system of our country where the Party and the state are taking full responsibility and care of the safety and health of people.
By these blessed benefits, Okryu Children’s Hospital has recorded many legendary and moving stories: A child in Hoeryong city who had been carried on back for 9 years since his birth came to walk on his own legs, and a boy in Sariwon city who had been blind for over 10 years restored sight and wrote a letter with his own hand, to mention but a few.
In many parts of the world, children are becoming the first victims of war, poverty or bloody tragedies. But the children on this land become the national focus, the incarnation of happiness and the symbol of bright future of the country.
There are many specialized hospitals for children over the world, but no such cradle of love as ours where the children of ordinary working people are fully enjoying nutritive meals and free medical care.
The sun’s benefit comes silent. The best country of the world where every household benefits, either aware or unaware, from the socialist free medical care system.
Endless indeed is the noble love for posterity cherished by respected Comrade Kim Jong Un who spares nothing for our children.
