Sometimes people say that
“the necessities of life - food, clothing and shelter are enough to survive.”
But it’s not always true for children.
Children need attention, love, and respect on top of other needs.
ChildFund Korea addresses the four categories of child rights (survival, protection, development, and
participation) set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, so that children in Korea can grow up in
a healthy and safe environment. We want to keep their dreams alive.
We provide support for childcare costs, educational costs, medical costs, housing costs, emergency essentials, etc., so that children can grow up healthy in the home.Feeding Service
