There are many foundations and funds in the world which find prides in having a long history and tradition with philanthropic and humanitarian aid, however, they are not assisted by lots of people from various nationalities surpassing the different political views and religious beliefs like the KKF.
It is because that the KKF is named after the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il who are revered by the world progressive people.
The KKF which is resplendent with the august names of the Sun will be more widely expanded and developed through the years and centuries with the bright Kim Jong Un era.
Ensuring that all the directors of the B.D. of the KKF, the members of the KKF, the staffs of the supporting organizations of the KKF and also the world people who show interests in the KKF works will render the selfless and constant support and encouragement to the KKF, thus helping expand and develop the KKF as the foundation of the Eternal Sun, I wish every success in your works in good health.
You will always be welcome to Pyongyang.
Vice-Chairman of the B.D. of the KKF.
On 14 May 2022, we, the members of the Board of Directors of the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation, KKF members, staffs of the supporting organizations and all other figures across the world who have so far donated and worked for the KKF’s expansion with the feeling of ardent yearning for the President Kim Il Sung and the Chairman Kim Jong Il, celebrate the 10th anniversary of its founding, resplendent with the august names of the Sun and amidst the special concern and expectation of all the Korean people and world’s progressive people.
On behalf of us who are ardently yearning for the President and the Chairman, and wishing for their immortality, we extend all our greatest respect and warmest thanks to His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, President of the State Affairs of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the DPRK, who has extended his great concern and warm care with regard to the KKF’s work.
Our deep thanks also go to all of those who have endowed and fully supported the expansion and development of the KKF.
On the occasion of celebrating the tenth anniversary of the KKF’s founding, we recollect in most humble reverence the President and the Chairman who are always alive in the hearts of the Korean and progressive people of the world as the Sun of mankind, who created the immortal Juche idea and built a socialist fortress of independence, self-reliance and self-defense and performed undying feats for the development of the international communist movement and for the cause of independence against imperialism, building and consolidating socialism.
President Kim Il Sung was an excellent leader and peerless great man of the 20th century.
The 20th century witnessed revolutionary changes which had never taken place in earlier history in the struggle for the independence.
It was the century when the severe class struggle between socialism and imperialism was ongoing.
And it was also the one when many renowned statesmen left their traces in transforming the destiny of the people and making a radical turn in the history of the world’s politics.
However, compared to what the President Kim Il Sung accomplished, none of them adorned the century with victory in the causes of independence against imperialism and socialism under the strong support of the people who followed his outstanding ideology, leadership and noble virtues. It was indeed the century brightly shining with his immortal exploits and personality as a truly great man.
President Kim Il Sung is a peerless elder statesman who achieved his immortal exploits for the time and the revolution with his profound ideology, theory, excellent leadership and extensive revolutionary practice.
By creating the immortal Juche idea he let the oppressed and humiliated people become the masters of history, dramatically raising their dignity and value as human beings.
His whole lifetime was spent with a motto “regarding the people as heaven”, which he applied it to his ideology and leadership.
He took as his faith the principle of revolution that the masses of the people are the masters of revolution and construction and they are the motive force of social development.
He always found himself among them and enlisted their inexhaustible strength and creative power to find the solutions that met their needs and interests.
Since they upheld the President as their leader, the Juche era, a new era in history, emerged when the masses of the people, who had been excluded from history in the past, stood at the center of the times and history shaping their destiny on their own.
President Kim Il Sung was a great leader who pioneered and developed the modern history from a new angle by leading the Korean revolution to victory under the banner of independence.
Independence was his creed, the way of making revolution and the revolutionary practice which the President kept and embodied throughout his lifetime.
Holding high the banner of independence for the first time in history he brought about a historical event in the history of human ideology and revolutionary struggle of the popular masses.
Maintaining the principle of independence, the President created a powerful main group for the Korean revolution and led to victory the causes of founding the party, army and the state, two revolutionary wars, post-war rehabilitation and two stages of social revolution and socialist construction, thus making his undying feats for the accomplishment of the causes of independence against imperialism and of socialism.
In his course of making revolution, he confirmed that independence is the just cause of history, the victory of revolution and the basis for the development of fair international relations. He guided the human history toward the road of independence, consequently opening a new history of independence by means of which the people could make revolution independently free from domination and subjugation.
Independence is now the manifest symbol of his image as a peerlessly great man and it is shining as a historical term representing his sacred revolutionary life and immortal exploits.
President Kim Il Sung was an ever-victorious, iron-willed brilliant commander and military genius who led to victory the Korean revolution with arms. In the anti-Japanese war and the Fatherland Liberation War, he defeated imperialist forces which were superior numerically and technically with political, ideological, strategic and tactical superiorities. Hence, he was greatly praised by all people in the world as the symbol of victory in the struggle against imperialism.
He was really a brilliant commander for all ages, the leader of a comprehensive and complete type, who combined pen and sword and who won victories in the struggle against imperialism, always taking up the arms of revolution in the whole period of his life.
President Kim Il Sung was a great man with noble personality. He was indeed the greatest person who no one can match in terms of personality. Progressive people have never known such a great statesman like the President who passed away at his office having finished all his work for the revolution and the people till the last minute of his life.
President Kim Il Sung was a great man of noble personality and virtues. He treated and took care of the people with his warm kindness and his character, which were so plain and informal.
He was much respected and revered by the Koreans and the progressive people, but he was always modest and lived a simple life like the ordinary people, never allowing any kind of privileges for himself.
He was friendly with many heads of the party and state and other prominent figures in the political, public and academic circles aspiring for independence in the world, displaying heartfelt kindness and generosity towards them. Those who met the President were so enchanted by his noble character as to boundlessly respect him even if they had opposed ideologies and political views.
President Kim Il Sung was indeed a peerlessly great leader and benevolent father of the people, such that history has never known.
He was really a far-sighted eminent leader as he laid a firm basis for carrying forward the revolutionary cause of Juche along the road to victory.
Treasuring the national reunification as the primary patriotic cause of the country the President made a great contribution to its realization and performed great feats for the global independence with his energetic external activities.
Upholding the banners of independence and international justice, the President worked actively and thus made his immortal exploits for strengthening and developing the global socialist movement, winning the victory in the cause of independence against imperialism and establishing independent and fair international relations and for the world peace and security.
President Kim Il Sung will be immortal as the great leader of people and the Sun of Juche since he created the guiding idea of the independence era and laid an eternal basis on which to accomplish the causes of global independence and socialism.
Chairman Kim Jong Il is the eternal General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the eternal Chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK. He developed the cause of revolution the President had begun into a higher phase and thus made an immortal contribution to developing the Korean and world revolution by setting as his life mission to maintain and enrich the President’s idea and cause.
He was a master of ideology and theory who made Kimilsungism shine brighter as the revolutionary idea that has great vital powers by enriching the Juche idea with his energetic ideological and theoretical activities in keeping with the needs of the times and the development of the revolution.
Chairman Kim Jong Il developed the WPK into the revolutionary party to lead the cause of independence under the banner of Kimilsungism and rallied the masses firmly around the party, thus remarkably strengthening the single-hearted unity of the revolutionary ranks. His excellent and seasoned leadership created a great heyday in all areas such as politics, military affairs, economy and culture of socialist Korea.
He was a peerlessly great man who defended national dignity and the supreme interests of the nation and converted the Juche socialist Korea into an invincible power by holding powerful arms under the banner of Songun.
In the 90s of the last century, when harsh trials descended, he defined Songun politics as the main mode of socialist politics and defended socialist Korea with this power. He also raised the DPRK into the political, ideological and military power and opened a new era of building a thriving socialist power.
He held the President in high esteem as the eternal leader by accomplishing the cause of immortalizing him for the first time in history and made brilliant his sacred revolutionary career and immortal exploits for all ages. He laid a firm basis for the socialist cause to move on toward victory.
He was a veteran statesman who wisely led the struggle to hasten the building of a thriving socialist power by his ceaseless field guidance without any moment of rest for the prosperity of socialist Korea and the happiness of the people. His tireless energetic leadership made a radical turn in economic development of socialist Korea, laid the basis on which to improve people’s livelihood and inaugurated a new great upsurge in the construction of socialist culture.
It was certainly an epoch-making miracle created by Songun politics that socialist Korea, not a big country, solidly defended his idea, politics and social system, developed into a political and military power and made rapid progress in the building of economic power under the serious situation when imperialist forces increased their acts to isolate and stifle the DPRK unprecedentedly and as never before.
True to the behest of the President, Chairman Kim Jong Il opened the era of June 15 reunification, a milestone of the country’s reunification, with his active leadership and rendered his immortal services for carrying forward the global independence.
Owing to his excellent wisdom and leadership, his iron will and superhuman devotion, socialist Korea was to radiate in the world with the august name of President Kim Il Sung and the Korean people were to become dignified people who shape their destiny with national pride and self-confidence.
Since we had the Chairman, the President is alive in the hearts of the Korean and progressive people as the Sun of Juche.
The 100-year long history of the struggle for socialism in Korea is indeed the most sacred and glorious history shining with the august names and immortal exploits of the great leaders President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il.
Today the socialist cause of the DPRK keeps growing under the leadership of His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un who intends to build the socialist Korea into an ideal society of mankind to be admired by all the people by taking up as his lifelong mission to hold high the idea and cause of the President and the Chairman.
His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un is the supreme incarnation of loyalty to the leader and an outstanding thinker and theoretician who is leading the socialist cause of Korea toward victory with his excellent ideological and theoretical wisdom and prominent political capability. He is a fatherly leader of the people as he is endowed with noble virtues and is so modest and simple in character.
He upheld the President and the Chairman as the Sun of Juche and made brilliant their sacred revolutionary lives and immortal exploits by achieving the cause of immortalizing them. He is another peerlessly great man who raised the strategic position of the DPRK up to the highest level by making epoch-making changes in all fields of politics, economy, science and technology and culture under the banner of Kimilsungism and Kimjongilism.
He is a seasoned politician who put forward the people-first principle aimed at devotedly serving the people as his political idea and is advancing the policy of attaching importance to loving the people. As a result, ideological and volitional unity between the party and the popular masses, the strongest power of Juche Korea, was consolidated and the DPRK was converted into the greatest power recognized by the world in a short span of period.
He opened a new era of reconciliation, peace, prosperity and reunification which feat is specially paginated in the history of Korean nation with his ardent love for nation, broad magnanimity and vast embracing power.
He developed the friendly relations with socialist and other countries with his seasoned diplomatic activities and achieved a great change in the DPRK-US relations that has been seriously deadlocked for dozens of years. He is now safeguarding the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the world, thus leading forward the cause of global independence.
The socialist cause of the DPRK stemming from the President and developed by the Chairman will surely be taken over and completed by His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un. And their august names and immortal exploits will be known for all ages to the progressive people in the world along with that of socialist Korea.
Under his special care and solicitude the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation was established on May 14 Juche 101(2012). Though it has a history of just ten years since the beginning of its work, it has been expanded and developed into the foundation cared for by the entire Korean people, as well as the worldwide foundation that has a great dignity and authority as it is trusted and supported by all Korean and progressive people who are ardently respecting the President and the Chairman.
KKF has now a rapidly and substantially growing number of donors, its members and affiliated organizations everywhere in the world, who are actively engaged in introducing and supporting the foundation.
KKF is on its way to a high time of progress in such a short period as His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un has always paid his deep attention to the foundation’s work, granted all benefits and taken all measures for it. It is also due to the priceless support from all the members of the Board, KKF members, affiliated organizations and all the other progressive figures the world over.
All the members of the Board, KKF members and affiliated organizations and staff members are obliged to keep in mind the invariable faith that the President and the Chairman will always be in the hearts of all Korean and world progressive people and shall disseminate their noble ideas, revolutionary lives and immortal exploits to the international communities so that all progressive people will always keep yearning for them.
We expect that all of you will do your best to expand and develop the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation into the foundation of immortalizing the leaders shining with the august names of the Sun and into the truly worldwide foundation, true to the noble intention of His Excellency respected Kim Jong Un.
Thomas Karl Richter,
A director of the B.D. of the KKF.

Keeping deeply in mind the honor and the pride as being one of the directors of the Board of Directors of the KKF, I will do my utmost in expanding and developing the KKF as the world fund, true to the lofty aim of the Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un to realize the cause of the Leader Eternity.
The history of the Sun will last forever with the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation.
a director of the Board of Directors of the KKF and the General Manager of the KKF Dandong branch office.
We are significantly greeting the 10th anniversary of the founding of the KKF this year when all the world has already meaningfully celebrated the birthday of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il.
The last decade since its foundation of the KKF is that of the advance and victory that the lifelong desires and the ideas of regarding the people as heaven of the Great Leaders were realized in reality under the leadership of the Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.
Comrade Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the WPK has encouraged and inspired the Korean people by visiting, before anything else, the places where the Great Leaders had visited to realize the ideas of the Great Leaders who had spent their whole lives for the happiness of the people regarding the people as heaven from the early years of leading the Korean people.
As a result, Korea has become an ideal society, the civilized state full of happiness and the socialist fortress on earth, self-reliable and self-defensive, which is unshakable by any upheavals.
Furthermore, the Korean people are building up their strong socialist country by their own mighty and technique ignoring the vicious and tenacious blockade and sanctions from the world reactionary allied forces.
Truly, all of the lines and policies that the Comrade Kim Jong Un has put forward in his time of leading the socialist Korea are inseparable from those of the Great Leaders who spent the whole lives for the needs of the people to realize the ideals and desires.
The General Secretary, therefore, having always set the task of upholding the Great Leaders eternally in high esteem as his first and foremost work, took measures to make the Kumsusan Palace of Sun as the holy place of Eternity of the Sun,which kind can not be found elsewhere in the world.
He also saw that the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation with the shining names of the Great men be established.
The KKF’s establishment is gaining greater concerns and supports from the world people who are looking upon the Great Leaders as the Sun of the independent era and as the Sun of mankind, and here in China, the number of donors is getting increased through the KKF Dandong branch as the days go by.
Today, the members of the KKF know well better than others that the expansion and the development of the KKF shall surely support the struggle of the Korean people in their building of a thriving socialist country, consolidating the China-Korea friendship and accelerating the global cause of independence.
Recalling back the last decade which has seen the expansion and development of the KKF together with the victorious advancement of the Juche-oriented socialist building which stemmed from Mt. Paekdu under the perfect will of the Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, I am assured of the prosperous future of the great cause of the leader eternity and of the unchanging history of the Sun of Juche.
Recalling the lively 10 years and unfolding the beautiful and brilliant future.
An honorable director of the B.D. of the KKF.
Time passes fleetingly, but it is lively and lets one to imagine the future.
One year over, one gets older, making oneself far off and near at the same time.
It made one to vision today in the past and makes one to foresee tomorrow today.
Years have passed on till we, eventually, are to meet the 10th anniversary of the founding of the KKF.
The very unforgettable day on which the 4th enlarged meeting of the B.D. of the KKF was held in Pyongyang in 2019, is felt to me as that of yesterday, still vivid in my memory.
The meeting which was specially well-attended is still deeply engraved in my mind.
Because the meeting awarded me a certificate of the honorable director.
My heart began pounding, my mind filled with the overwhelming gratitude and pleasure and at the same time I felt that I needed to be shouldered by the responsibility and obligation as the director.
The KKF, as is known to all, was established reflecting the unanimous will and desires of the Korean people and the world progressive people to uphold the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il in high esteem forever as the Sun.
The President Kim Il Sung was the benevolent father of the people who always shared joys and sorrows with them, regarding as his motto “the people are my god”.
He was also the outstanding leader who had the thriving socialist Korea be built and accumulated the immortal exploits in the cause of global independence with the ideal of independence, friendship and peace.
The great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il achieved immortal exploits in the course of global independence by leading the world politics with staunch revolutionary principles and outstanding political ability, so that he was boundlessly respected and praised by the people over the world as the most distinguished statesman and the the Sun of the 21st century.
The KKF, since its establishment, has proven its development during the last decade which has been fostered by the power, wisdom and love of the majority of the progressive people in the world who boundlessly respect and admire the the peerless Leaders.
In particular, the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un concretely clarified the directions and ways to expand and develop the KKF onto a Leaders Eternity Foundation and is wisely leading the foundation works.
In the past 10 years, all the staffs and the members of the KKF persevered, sharing common interests and working heart and soul with the united power in widely presenting about the KKF.
As a result, the KKF which was named after the great men has been expanded and developed as the world one, thus many more people over the world have become to know about the lives and exploits of the Great Leaders.
Looking back the past 10 years, I can say that the course that the KKF has undergone is the one which is full of pleasure, pride and dignity.
The KKF has continuously contributed to the works of education, health care and environmental protection and so on as desired by the Great Leaders in their lifetime by upholding them as the eternal Sun of Juche and laid a firm cornerstone for the expansion and development of the Fund.
The KKF, in the last 10 years, has shown its development by foreseeing its far-sightedness, newly creating and opening up the path with the times go by.
My first visit to beautiful Korea in the year 2000 gave me a great honor and it becomes greater as I see more often I feel the vitality and prosperity everywhere I go. This helps make me feel more strongly the lives of the Great Leaders and the respect and admiration to the wise leadership of the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.
I have visited the DPRK for scores of times and I can not forget the kindness and love I received.
In 2018, I was invited to Pyongyang and visited the asylum for the aged, Changgwang kindergarten and other places, deeply feeling about the free and happy lives of the Korean people and realizing the greatness and reviving aspects of the DPRK.
Since the DPRK has systematized the most obvious and superior socialist education network in which scientific, information-updated and modernization of the education is given priority to others, the systems of 12-year compulsory education and of all people study has been set up. By doing so, it could manage to bring up many talented and qualified persons with outstanding creative ability.
Under the loving care which knows no end of the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, all the students are studying and growing up without any worries, enjoying the benefit of the socialist free education system in line with the views on the fatherland and future of the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.
And also the DPRK keeps the most advantageous socialist public health system, operating hospitals with comprehensive and modern equipments everywhere where people are treated free of charge. It all helps define the criterion that the happiness of the people is just the main motive and source of building of socialism and enables one to evaluate the state power.
Owing to the benevolent politics of the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un who gives high priority to the benefit of the people, a network of national medical treatment system has successfully been established in the DPRK corresponding with the civilized and prosperous country.
As being one of the members of the KKF, I keep deep feeling in the KKF.
I am confident that to publicize the immortal exploits of the Great Leaders is the prerequisite of expanding and developing the KKF into that of all human beings over the world and is the decisive factor to guarantee the success of the KKF works.
For the past several years, the Secretariat of the KKF has been editing the articles of the fund activities including the photos of the Great Leaders in the periodicals as one of the works of fund propaganda which receives the warm reactions and praises from the world progressive people.
Along with this, the Secretariat intensively posted the immortal exploits in the periodicals that the Great Leaders have contributed for the development of education, public health,protection of the environment and the peace of the mankind, so that many more progressive people of the world would keep the minds of remembrance and admiration on the peerless Great men.
What impressed me most is that the staffs of the Secretariat ,in their busiest time, by paying the special attentions to the members of the KKF in different countries, have tried hard so that the members deeply feel the kindness, the love and hopes which the Foundation shows.
I will further try my best to present about immortal exploits of the Great Leaders and the mission and the activities of the foundation and to form the organizations which support the Foundation.
And also I will open up the fresh works of the exchange and cooperation with other foundations and funds in the world and will endeavor to push the works of economic cooperation based on the mutual benefits, thus participating in developing the thriving socialist Korea to bring the dreams and ideals of the people into reality.
By regularly keeping in touch with the members of the KKF and the donors I will have the foundation to be more expanded and do the number of the members of the KKF be more increased.
At the same time, I will continue to communicate with the KKF members to exchange the experiences in the KKF works,thus helping develop the KKF works by the wisdom and mighty of the majority of the staffs.
The KKF has so far been rich-experienced, its prominence risen into, for the last 10 years.
It is unthinkable without the sincerity, hard efforts and forward-looking spirit of the many KKF members.
As the bright sun is undying the history of the happy Korea will last forever.
I am quite sure the proud history of the KKF will shine for centuries or even millennium when all are united with the same aim and power.
Dearly motivated by his limitless loyalty of the Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un to uphold the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il as the undying Sun of the Korean people and the world progressive people, the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il will be alive as the Sun in the hearts of the the world progressive people.
IT WILL SHINE FOREVER.
an honorable director of the B.D. of the KKF.
The year 2022 is the one that we meet the 10th anniversary of the KKF’s founding.
The Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un had the Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation be established on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Comrade Kim Il Sung and 70th birthday of Comrade Kim Jong Il reflecting the desire of all the Korean people and those of the world progressiveness who are willing to endlessly admire and uphold the Great leadr Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il as the eternal Sun of Juche. As the KKF having been founded, the world progressive people are able to make a contribution to the work of upholding the Great Leaders in high esteem as the Sun of Juche whom they admire and can never forget.
Availing myself of this opportunity, I would like to extend my noblest gratitude to the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il and a warmest greeting to the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un who firmly inherits the ideas and cause of the Leaders.
The Great Leader Kim Il Sung was an extraordinary politician who had opened up an independent era by the Juche idea and built up an example of independent state in DPRK.
He set forth the original idea of making the whole world independent, decisively rejecting the domination and subjugation of all kinds and readily supported in all his life to all of the nations in the world that they could bring about joint prosperity and social security on the principle of independence.
The president Kim Il Sung with his outstanding idealogical theories, unique leadership and noble humanity enjoyed a brilliant admiration of all the people as the greatest man of the great men and a peerless sage.
The exploits of the President Kim Il Sung shall be everlasting and immortaland his name shall be kept august in the minds of the world people.
The Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il had unfolded and enriched the Juche idea as the integrated Juche system of idea,theory and method which had been authored by the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung to publicize it as the eternal guiding idea for independence.
Comrade Kim Jong Il had also formulated the revolutionary idea of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung as Kimilsungism and confidently demonstrated to the whole world that the DPRK is a big socialist family which is united as one, politically strong.
Comrade Kim Jong Il, in the harsh times when the Eastern Europe began to collapse due to the scheming of the imperialists and the world was all concerned of the fate of the DPRK, resolutely protected socialism of Korea and the world peace with the arms of Songun held high, greatly contributing to the consolidation of the global socialist movement and to the realization of the independence of the human beings by unfolding his smart diplomatic stratagem and energetic foreign policy. Therefore,he is still remembered by the progressive people and appraised as the global eminent politician.
Today the revolutionary exploits of the Great Leaders are successfully inherited by the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.
The Marshal Kim Jong Un is leading the Korean people who are loved by the Great Leaders. He has formulated the essence of KimIlSungKimJongIlism as the people-first-policy, and relying on the power of the masses, he is leading the socialist construction in DPRK.
Since we have the Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un who has had the state power to be fostered strong which was unimaginable after liberation by leading the DPRK and its people with his prominent idea and leadership and the warmest love and devotion, the great cause of Leader Eternity shall be lasting forever and the peace of the DPRK and the world be safely protected.

As is known to all, the KKF has been established to praise the peerless great men who had incresed the well being of the people to build a strong country and had developed a friendly relation with many countries in the world based on the mutual respect.
The mission of the KKF is to raise funds for preserving the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun as the supreme temple of Juche for all ages and contributing to the development of education, public health and the envoronmental protection as desired by the Great Leaders in their lifetime.
The Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung,who had received a whole-hearted popular support in the anti-Japanese armed struggle for the liberation of the country did his all to provide rich living conditions to the people keeping his life-long motto of regarding the people as heaven.
The education which is fundamental basis for deciding the destiny of the country and the future of the nation well illustrated his devotion.
The free of charge education system of the DPRK which was set up in 1959 was the advanced and superior system, enabling all the people to study free of charge and to incessantly widen their knowledges systematically, their talents enjoying a boom.
The Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il said the works to making all the people as the socialist universalists had been successfully done owing to the most advanced socialsit education system and the system of all-people-learning, of which the cost paid fully by the state.
For the covenience of the commuting of the students in the mountaineous area and the isolated islands, the transportation system in the land, railway and the sea was arranged.
In the 6th meeting of the 4th Supreme Peoples Assembly of DPRK, the policy of the public health was adopted which contained the articles that every Korean nation has the full rights of the free of charge treatments including the medical care of outpatient, hospitalizing and sanatorium.
The maternity hospital is perfectly furnished necessary for the birth of the babies and for observing the women preganant with twins.
In December,2019, Yangdok hot spa resort was built.
Keeping abreast with the healthcare, the jobs to preserve and protect the environments are going on.
In one example, Comrade Kim Il Sung personally planted trees on Munsu Hill just after the liberation of the country and hand-shovelled by himself to announce the improvement of the Potong River and saw that an all-out campaign to improve the rivers.
Reforestration started to turn all the mountains into the ones full of gold and treasure.
Forestry is regarded as the ever-lasting treasure for the rehabilitation of the country and for the happiness of the generations to come. That is why a campaign to wood the vast areas in the countryis is waged by popular masses. I am glad to know that the tradition of the devotion for the people which had been started by the peerless great men is being developed and enriched by the wise leadership of the Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un whose activities enjoy admiration from the world progressive people.
The KKF keeps us updated with the energetic activities of the leader of the DPRK.

Chao Pin, a Chinese KKF member.
May the 14th in 2022 is a day we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the KKF which is named after the august names of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il and, on this special day, I recollect them in deeo emotion.
The President Kim Il Sung was born on 15th,April,1912 in an ordinary peasant family in Mangyongdae,Pyongyang city of Korea.
At the time when the President Kim Il Sung was born, Korea was a enslaved nation under the Japanese colonial rule.
Unrivaled in all aspects of wisdom since he was young, the President Kim Il Sung, at the age of 7, took part in the national demonstration-March 1st independent movement- against the Japanese invaders together with the adults.
The abortive demonstration made him to cherish deeper resistance against the Japanese imperialists and the revolutionary idea of the Korean Independence.
From his childhood, the President Kim Il Sung had the ability to command.
There was a warship-shaped rock near the Daedonggang river in Mangyongdae and the President Kim Il Sung would play at soldiers on it against the Japs with his friends.
The President Kim Il Sung would often say to his friends that he would expel the Japs to get back the country.
The President Kim Il Sung, when he was studying at Fusong Primary school No.1 and Yuwen middle school in Jilin Province,made friendly with many progressive Korean and Chinese students,waging a massive progressive activities until he formed a league of Down with the Imperialists.
In his school days,he was specially friendly with Zhang Weihua, a schoolmate, and this story was engraved in the history of China-Korea Friendship.
In his middle school days, the President Kim Il Sung organized the Korean Communist Youth League and a secret reading club while publicizing the Marxist-Leninist ideas to start the anti-Japanese Armed Revolutionary Struggle among the Korean immigrants.
The parents of the President Kim Il Sung have died because of the deepened illnesses caused by their tireless devotion for the revolution.
Whenever I read the remembrance of the President Kim Il Sung remembering his parents lives I could not hold back tearing.
The President Kim Il Sung lost his parents when he was too young.
Many colleagues of the President Kim Il Sung sacrificed their valuable lives for the Korean independence.
The President Kim Il Sung and his Chinese companions, after the September 18 uprising, had begun the anti-Japanese struggle in Northeastern Manchuria where the natural envoronment was the severest in the world war history.
The President Kim Il Sung, leading the guerrillas utilizing the unpredictable war tactics, killed the Japs who would tremble with horrors.
Comrade Kim Jong Il was born on 16th,February,1942 at Mt. Paekdu secret camp when the President Kim Il Sung and Comrade Kim Jong Suk, an anti-Japanese heroine, were waging the anti-Japanese struggle in the Northeast area.
Comrade Kim Jong Il would see that his parents were waging anti-Japanese struggle for the Korean Liberation in Manchuria area.
In 1945, the President Kim Il Sung finally restored Korea by defeating the Japs.
After the liberation, the President Kim Il Sung,so busy with his works, could not drop by Mangyongdae native place. The song of Mangyongdae Fork is sung until today.
By the scheme of the U.S. imperialists, Korea was divided into two, and the South Korean puppet army invaded the North instigated by the U.S.
The President Kim Il Sung saw that the invaders from the south to be repelled, Seoul was liberated in 3 days.
The Daejon liberation battle was posted in the textbooks in military schools of many countries.
The President Kim Il Sung personally went to the frontline bases for several times regardless of his bodily safety, giving the proper tactics to the army men, thus victories won constantly.
At the very time when the South Korean army and the Americans were surrounded in Pusan and when the reunification of Korea was near at hand, the U.S. imperialists formed a combined army forces of 15 countries and invaded Korea again.
The Chinese people who were assisted by the President Kim Il Sung and the Korean people in the period of China northeast liberation war organized and sent the Chinese Peoples Volunteers to fight together with the Korean people against the American invaders until the Americans were forced to stop the war and the victory was won in the Fatherland Liberation War.
The President Kim Il Sung, after the war, was taking care of thousands of works for the post-war rehabilitations. Everywhere in Korea was associated with the field guidance of the the President Kim Il Sung.
Fully aware of the world history, I know well about the spy ship,Pueblo,which was captured by the Korean Navy under the direct order of the President Kim Il Sung. It was in 1968 when the ship was on its illegal espionage act.
The Americans blustered that they would start a war, however, the President Kim Il Sung said that the Korean people could not concede against their blustering until they admit and apologize their wrong-doing, thus the stamina of the socialist Korea was displayed to the world.
On 15th,April in 1969, the 57th birthday of the the President Kim Il Sung, an American air scout flew into the Korean territorial air. The President Kim Il Sung immediately ordered the Korean Air force to shoot it down without any hesitation. The Americans got wild angry but had no other choice.
Against the war threat by U.S. imperialism the President Kim Il Sung issued an order to all the army and the people. The Americans,feared by the defiant spirit of the President Kim Il Sung, held back from doing anything.
This fact mentally encouraged the other nations who were under the suppression of the U.S. imperialists.
The President Kim Il Sung and the Comrade Kim Jong Il had developed and enriched the Juche Idea which is till today shining in the world.
In 8th,July 1994, the world progressive people heard the grievous news that the President Kim Il Sung who was the Mentor and an intimate friend of the progressive people had passed away.
In those days that the world has lost the greatest man ever, Comrade Kim Jong Il led the Korean people to go ahead although the difficulties were facing.
It was just when the Soviet Union and the East European socialist countries collapsed in relay with the socialist faith diminished in the world, and the DPRK was said not being able to overcome the difficulties among the international society.
Pushing his way against the ordeals with his strong will, Comrade Kim Jong Il made an everyday guidance to all parts of Korea.
He always found himself among the people, encouraging the army men and the people at his self sacrifice to develop the Korean economics along with the Songun policy.
Without taking care of his health, he visited every part of the country. For the sake of the well being of the people and to safeguard socialism, he led to launch the satellites and had the test of nuclear weapons be proved successful, the national pride of the Korean people was furthered still in the East of the world.
In 17th,December,2011, when the Korean people were confidently advancing under the leadership of Comrade Kim Jong Il, he passed away from days-long fatigue in the guidance train to the local area.
Despite the ill-wills of the hostilities, Comrade Kim Jong Un was elected as the leader of the DPRK by the enthusiastic welcome of the Korean people.
Under his leadership, the armed force of the DPRK has seen its development with each passing day in order to keep the security of the area and the peace safe.
Since the year 2012, a dramatic change has been brought about in Korea which includes the construction of the housing boulevards like as Mirae, Ryomyong, Songsin-Songhwa and Gyongru-dong, providing a better living condition to the people.
As one of the members of the KKF, on the occasion of the forthcoming 10th anniversay of the founding of the KKF, I would like to extend my true belief that the DPRK will surely achieve greater successes in the socialist construction.
Blessing a good health of Comrade Kim Jong Un, I wish a prosperity, happiness and health of the Korean people.
