Improving the Lives of Korean Youth Through Outreach and Education

Holidays, Camps & Activities

Just how we look forward to certain holidays and special celebrations in our own lives, the children look forward to special programs hosted by KKOOM, whether they are a camping trip, arts/crafts camp, or a holiday party. Every year, we host Christmas parties by sponsoring gifts, meals, and activities at three KKOOM-supported children’s homes in the Gyeongsangbuk-do region. We also partner with organizations in Seoul who support other children’s homes.
