“It doesn’t cost much money for typhoid vaccination. The kid could’ve been treated…” - Sponsor, Hwang Tae-Sung
You can recover easily with just vaccination and simple initial treatment, but there are no hospitals where you can go or treatment fees, so we are enduring pain without knowing why. * Typhoid is an acute systemic febrile disease with a low mortality rate of around 1% when appropriate treatment is given.

Q. How does child sponsorship work? The donations you send supports for healthy growth of sponsored children and stable self-reliance of families and local communities through overseas workplaces where children belong. We provide direct support for food, school supplies, tuition, health check-ups, hygiene education, etc. to children and families, as well as indirect support services such as installation of drinking water and sanitation facilities, construction and renovation of school and health centers, and cooperative operation. Q. If I sponsor a child, how can I receive news from the child?When you start sponsoring a marriage relationship, you will receive an Overseas Child Sponsorship Guide and a ‘Child0 Introduction Card' containing photos and information of the child within two weeks.From one year after the start of donation, you can receive news from children twice a year. First, in the first half of the year, you can receive a ‘Growth Report' that allows you to check children's photos, growth information, and support for children and local communities.
“ I want to tell you that it doesn't start for a big reason. It's a small part for me, I think it could be a big part for one child."
