Order of Malta Australia


300 residents in Korean slums are delivered ‘Bread for the Weekend’


The Order of Malta Korea kicked off the first delivery of ‘Bread for Weekend’ to the forgotten neighbours as its first activity in 2019.

The project is another initiative by Members in Korea to address critical urban poverty for the neighbours in various slums in the city of Seoul.

The Order of Malta Korea funded the set up of the ‘Bread for the Weekend’ bakery in a small property that belongs to Sisters of Mary. Going forward, this project will be carried out in a collaborative structure, with the Order of Malta Korea supplying the bakery material and take the role of delivery, while the Sisters of Mary will give their hands to the baking the nutritious bread.

The first delivery was made to 300 slum residents to ensure they don’t stay hungry over the first weekend of the new year.
