ICC Korea invited business owners and enterprisers to the event.  During the opening ceremonies, 10 businesses signed MOU’s with ICC Korea promising to donate a percentage of their NET profits to ICC Korea.  This could well be the start of a very successful sponsorship program for ICC Korea as more and more businesses join in the effort to help orphaned and abandoned children.  Following is a picture of ICC Korea’s President, Dr. Cho, with one of the business owners.

The program for the evening featured two musical performances and a specail artist performance.  Artist Kwon, Young Seob is a renowned artist, not only in Korea, but also throughout the world.  While the flute ensemble, NAD, performed Kwon, Young Seob created a special painting of Dokdo Island.  Dokdo Island is a political hot potato between Korea and Japan.  Both countries claim it as their own.

Anthony Ahn, ICC Korea’s standing director, suggested to Kwon, Young Seob that “the image of Dokdo can completely delineate an ICC orphan’s situation.  Dokdo and orphans are the same.  Both are lonely and (have) feelings of alienation.”  This is of course, is the situation until they find their permanent home within an ICC children’s village where they find a sense of belonging.  Kwon, Young Seob was excited by the symolism, and as NAD played, he created a special painting of Dokdo Island.

ICC Korea was excited by this event and looks forward to increasing the awareness of ICC’s programs for orphaned and abandoned children.  What a huge blessing it is for the ICC family of partner offices to have ICC Korea as a growing member.  Through ICC Korea’s expanded efforts, it is hoped that more and more children can experience the love and security of home and family.
