Following Master’s compassionate example of bringing love and assistance to those in need, from December 2015 to January 2016, our Association members helped disadvantaged individuals in Daejeon, Korea.
To a family living in older house that was unsuitable for the winter cold, we gave KRW 300,000 (US$255), 20 kilograms of rice and 32 packs of ramen. The family was very grateful for the assistance. We gave 256 packs of ramen to a woman who takes care of many children when their parents are unable to. The woman said with deep appreciation, “I feel we are raising the children together.”
Finally, we gave 256 packs of ramen for our neighbors in need in Daejeon City and Chungcheongnam-do Province, and 256 packs of ramen to the Chungcheongnam-do Multicultural Families Association, who support international families living in Korea with social adjustment through cultural activities as well as with finding jobs.
