A delegation of 21 members from Gyeonggi Province, South Korea’s Muhandolbom Welfare Center visited St. Anthony Foundation on May 15th. St. Anthony’s Executive Director Shari Roeseler welcomed the group and answered questions before the delegation took an in-depth tour of the facilities and met with staff.
Joo Yeon Jee, Deputy Director and her group wanted to learn more about St. Anthony’s systems and supportive programs. She said that “the social welfare programs and management of the St. Anthony Foundation have been an inspiration to us,” and she “strongly believe[s] that St. Anthony Foundation is the right place for us to get some advice about social welfare fund raising and how to manage systems and programs.” The group would like “to improve [their] operation and the quality of [their] service to make a better place for society.”
Gyeonggi Province in South Korea includes 27 cities and is the most populous province in Korea. The Muhandolbom Welfare Center was established in 2008 to support low-income families in crisis.
