NEW PROJECT: Bread for Weekend – feeding the forgotten in Korean slums
The Order of Malta Korea has launched a second project – Bread for the Forgotten People. This follows the success of the Lunch Boxes for the Forgotten People.
Bread for the Forgotten People aims to provide the breads to those who can hardly afford even one meal over the weekend, and will continue under the name of ‘Bread for Weekend’. The Sisters of Mary will bake the breads on our behalf and the Order of Malta Korea will pack and deliver them to the House of Love and Peace, from where they will be distributed to the forgotten people in the slum neighborhood nearby. The first baked breads were consecrated by Father Paul Seong-ryong Bae and Father Bartolomeo Keun Huh.
Heartfelt thanks to Silvano Yongmaan Park, President of the Order of the Malta Korea, who initiated the project and donated the entire facility for the bakery in the convent of Sisters of Mary. Appreciation must also be given to Helene Hyewon Chung, an Aspirant of the Order of Malta Korea, who implemented the project.
