Improving the Lives of Korean Orphans Through Outreach and Education

Welcome Boost

When new orphans arrive at Samsungwon Orphanage or Emmanuel Children’s Home, they usually have just the clothes on their backs. That is why we provide a $125 Welcome Boost Fund to their house mother to buy new clothing and basic necessities for the children. Since April 2016, we have provided 14 Welcome Boost Funds to newly arrived Korean orphans.
