1,000 Order of Malta Lunchboxes in March for those in Seoul slums
For the month of March, the Order of Malta Korea carried out four weekly lunchbox services on the first and third Tuesdays, and on the second and fourth Thursdays. Nearly 1,000 lunchboxes were cooked and packed across the four services, by a total of 25 volunteers – 20 of which are regular volunteers who participate at least once a month and have done so for over a year.
“We are grateful that this simple and yet conscious routine is now part of our lives in which we feel embraced by the love of God.” Veronica Kim, Member of the Order of Malta Korea
Among the forgotten neighbors in slum to whom we serve the lunchboxes regularly, there are quite a number of patients who are suffering from various types of disorder or impairment that unables them to digest solid food. For those in such condition, we have been preparing rice porridge cooked with minced vegetables, helping them to recover with enough nutrition.
