On December 16th and 23rd, we hosted Christmas parties at two orphanages in Gumi and Gimcheon, South Korea. It’s an annual tradition for the children and they look forward to it every year. We were lucky to have our Chief Administrator present to plan both parties. The parties would not have been possible without the amazing volunteers who took time out of their busy holiday schedules to be there, so we thank you for your dedicated time to show up and spread Christmas cheer.
We thank our donors for your support! Receiving donations from Malaysia, United States, and South Korea, the children could enjoy festive Christmas activities while receiving Christmas gifts. Your giving means so much to the kids and we hope you see how you’ve brightened their holiday season through our photos and videos we’ve been sharing on social media.
Also, we want to give a huge appreciation to the staff at both Samsungwon Orphanage and Emmanuel Children’s Home. Every day, there are staff and volunteers that help run the daily operations of the orphanages. We are able to continue supporting approximately 130 children at these two orphanages because of the staff we closely work with.
That’s a wrap on our 12 Days of KKOOM! Through the blog posts, it shows how your donations support South Korean orphans throughout the year.
