Won Symbol  DESCRIPTION  Thin Line

“In this book, I have narrated the personal experiences I have had as they actually occurred while carrying out my various missions. Building a school, sending six containers of winter clothes, and currently building a hospital for the residents of Ladakh, the remotest back region of the globe. Minesweeping, building an orphan

age, sponsoring a teachers’ training program, and providing scholarships for Buddhist monks in Cambodia. Sending medical supplies to twelve African countries.

Collecting a total of eighteen containers of clothes and sending them to the

Himalayas, Cambodia , Sri Lanka, Mongolia, North Korea etc., countries where people had short supplies of essential commodities , was comparable to a small

miracle created by the warm hearted people from every walk of life in our society.” – Park, Chung Soo
