Order of Malta Korea provides emergency relief kits for vulnerable during COVID-19 outbreak
The members and volunteers of the Order of Malta Korea have put together an emergency relief project for the neighbours whose lives are hopelessly challenged by the COVID-19 outbreak.
25 volunteers gathered early in the morning to pack 600 relief boxes full of packaged food and personal hygiene products. The total weight of the supplies exceed five tonnes. The volunteers took five hours to prepare the relief kits which were then sent to Daegu Diocese to help underfed children, foreign workers and refugees in the most affected region, as well as Myung Hwi Won and Caritas where the free meal service has temporarily stopped.
Members and volunteers are scheduled to repeat the initiative next Saturday to ensure that some of the most vulnerable members of society are cared for during the pandemic.
We pray that our love and attention can reach those in need with feasible support, and even more so in such disastrous circumstances.
