Welcome From The President
It is not far from us. It is right beside us.
It is not far from us. It is right beside us.
It is not far from us. It is right beside us.
 Social Welfare Society is a historical adoption agency that was founded 66 years ago in 1954. It started to spread ‘respect for all life’ to this world by taking care of and finding new families for orphans that were in need of shelter and care in the wake of the Korean war.

 Social Welfare Society has since expanded its services according to the ever-changing welfare needs, environment, and various societal needs and has become what it is now. We are providing systematical support programs for the population that are in need of care including children, adolescents, people with disabilities, and seniors. Through these programs we are continuously striving to help the population in need to live with stability and advance towards a better life.

 Since its foundation the greatest focus of Social Welfare Society has been particularly placed on protecting and taking care of infants and children that have lost their parents. The little angels that are left alone are provided with medical and educational services and attentively taken care of so that they can grow up healthy and happy. Single parent households are supported to lead an independent and stable life, and efforts are made to promote changes on the public’s perspective on single mothers.

 Looking back at the past 66 years, South Korea has now joined the group of developed countries through rapid economic growth, and has moved on from a country that receives aid to a country that provides aid. The support that is sent to children in developing countries by South Korea through international relief organizations amounts to hundreds of billions of Korean won each year; It is our pride to do so. However, it is important to remember that there are still poverty and negligence amongst our own neighbors and our own children.

 It is not far from us. It is right beside us. Helping those people so that they do not let go of their hopes is the mission of Social Welfare Society. We will always be beside them with love and care. We deeply appreciate our supporters for walking alongside with us with such warmth, and hope your support and care to continue.
