North Korea 북한

Little korean kids in Nampo orphanage. The place that is shown to visitors is brand new, the babies and kids are full of life, playing with tons of toys. But this it is not a orphanage like in western countries, because most of the kids do have parents. But parents who do not have enough money , so they put their babies here. That is the official speech. There's a lot of twins, and even some triplets in the orphanage, one more time the official explanation is: when a couple's got twins, he cannot afford to educate them, so government takes care of them...

 

L orphelinat de Nampho est flambant neuf, propre, plein de jouets et presente aux visiteurs des enfants aux joues roses et en apparente bonne sante.

Ce nest pas un orphelinat comme nous l entendons dans nos pays: les enfants ont la plupart du temps des parents, mais suite a des naissances de jumeaux opu triplets, ils n ont pas assez d argent pour les elever et les laissent dans ces institutions. C est le discours officiel. Le web vehicule des rumeurs bien plus alarmantes sur les jumeaux et triplets. Ce qui est donne a voir aux etrnagers ne laisse en tout cas rien transparaitre si cela s avererait vrai.
