A jumbo jet chartered by Samaritan’s Purse arrived in North Korea Friday morning, bringing $8 million worth of emergency supplies to flood victims in North Korea.
The Boeing 747 was loaded Wednesday with 75 tons of supplies, including medicines, water filtration equipment, tools, blankets, and 1,000 rolls of heavy-duty plastic sheeting to build emergency shelters for thousands of families. The historic airlift left Charlotte shortly after midnight on Thursday and landed in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, on Friday.
