ReACH Rescuing Abductees Center for Hope

firefox ReACH (Rescuing Abductees Center for Hope) is a Washington, DC based non-profit group started in 2005. The group is made up of dedicated people who all believe in the mission of bringing those people abducted by North Korea back to their home countries. We rely on good will from others to carry out our mission.



Our Mission Statement

To lobby governments around the world to appeal to the North Korean government to release all abductees still held there against their will.


Our mission includes some important objectives:

  • Support visitors to Washington, DC who are working on a resolution to the abduction issue.
  • Inform the general public about the abductions of citizens by North Korea.
  • Improve our own understanding and knowledge of the abductions.


Our Activities Include:

  • Sharing information about the abductions with each other and others.
  • Organizing public events that inform people about the abductions.
  • Staying in touch and working in conjunction with other groups whose mission overlaps our own.
  • Supporting the film “ABDUCTION The Megumi Yokota Story” (a 85-minute documentary about an important abduction case) whenever or wherever it is shown around the world.
  • Translating texts and writings by family members of people abducted by North Korea for foreign audiences, particularly English-speaking ones.
