12 Days of KKOOM – #11) Enjoying summer vacation

Every year, the children at Samsungwon Orphanage in Gumi, South Korea, look forward to an annual summer trip during their school break. It is a 2-3 day trip to wind down, enjoy their vacation, and have fun!

This August, the kids explored Everland Amusement Park. It is the largest theme park in South Korea and every year, there are approximately 7.3 million visitors, ranking it 16th in the world for the highest attendance at an amusement park. Perhaps you can imagine the chaos and mayhem of all the visitors in the park! During the 3 days and 2 nights, the kids created memories together, exploring the park with their friends and looking out for one another.

You can get a glimpse from the photos that the children really enjoyed themselves, whether holding up a peace sign in between the rides or eating a meal. By supporting KKOOM, you help create positive memories during the children’s summer vacation, whether that entails camping, going to a water park, or visiting Everland. The children love these outings, so thank you very much for investing in helping KKOOM provide fun, unique experiences for them!

Luckily, one of our Board Members Bill Downey was able to attend the Everland trip this year to capture these great shots of the children. By the way, do you see a theme in the photos? It’s the infamous peace sign that’s found in a typical photo in South Korea. We hope to continue sharing stories of the kids on these summer trips with your financial contributions.
