ABOUT THE LAI DAI HAN
Justice for Lai Dai Han campaigns for South Korea to recognise and investigate allegations of sexual violence during the Vietnam War.
Justice for Lai Dai Han works with policy makers, writers and artists to ensure this injustice is finally recognised, alongside fundraising efforts on behalf of the Lai Dai Han and their families.
