Child trafficking in South Korea

The “brothers home” shelter scandal is a painful memory that many Koreans are reluctant to mention. Unexpectedly, years later, the associated press broke the terrible news. This organization, called “hell in hell”, not only abused children, but also sold them to private adoption agencies.
The Associated Press reported on the 10th that they not only abused children, but also used them as a tool to collect money and sold them to adoption agencies. These children are sold to adoption agencies and placed in families in North America, Europe or Australia. It is estimated that during the heyday of brotherhood, the proceeds from child trafficking overseas amounted to $20 million a year.
In fact, the scandal of “brothers’ house” was exposed by South Korean media several decades ago and caused public opinion turbulence. In the 1970s and 1980s, the South Korean government put more than 16000 homeless people in black prison for cleaning the city. This is the case with a Pusan institution called brotherhood house, which holds about 4000 people, mostly children and disabled people. They were beaten, raped and toiled in prison. In 1988, the “brothers’ home” was officially closed. Several years later, developers found that about 100 human skeletons had been buried there during the reconstruction. The scandal came to light. It was also made into the movie the melting pot.
