We provide education for children from low income families that can't afford hagwons and tutors for their children.
We also run a group home. The children who stay in our group home have either lost one or both parents. They have no family able to take care of them for a multitude of reasons. We have 6 children- 4 boys and 2 girls- who stay in our group home.
Given their situation you might imagine that these children do not have much in life. We are only able to provide them with what our donors give us for them.
My request to you is this. Christmas is coming soon. I want to do something nice for these kids.
My thinking is to give each one a gift certificate for one of the internet clothing stores like GMarket. Things here in JangHeung are too expensive. I would also like to get them a game console and some games (XBox, Playstation, whatever).
I am requesting your help to make this happen. You know what's next! I need to get some money for this. I am hoping to ask everyone to give 20,000w-40,000w each for the effort. Anything would of course be appreciated!!!
Donations can be wired to a bank account set up with NongHyup Bank:
JangHeung TamJin Group Home (장흥탐진그룹홈)
Nonghyup Bank / 농협은행
