John Wurth from the Jeollanam-do’s jangheung county has passed along some information to me about a fundraising for the upcoming holidays for the Jangheung Area Children’s Center:
I work in JangHeung Eup, part of JangHeung County in Jeollanamdo. In my spare time I volunteer at JangHeung Area Childrens Center. As part of our program we operate a group home for children. The children in our group home have lost one or both parents and do not have any family able to care for them.
I am doing a project for Christmas at the group home. Our goal is to raise 1,000,000w to provide Christmas presents for the kids. We have 6 kids- 4 boys and 2 girls. We want to give them something special. Our plan is to purchase a game system (playstation, xbox, whatever…) and some nice clothes for the kids.
Donations can be wired to a bank account set up with NongHyup Bank:
JangHeung TamJin Group Home (장흥탐진그룹홈)
Nonghyup Bank / 농협은행
For those interested it sounds like a worthwhile cause to check out.
