Group Home: Poussepin's home

South Korea is widely regarded as a developed country, with its height technology and fast global development, and provides sufficient welfare programs and care for the old and young. And in the midst of all repaid change of the country, we give our service to the girl child, who are abandoned from their families.

Poussepin’s group home is a private residence for children who cannot live with their families, categories of single parents, physically and mentally abused children, Being unwanted, unloved, uncared, and forgotten from their loved ones. We also accept the children who are in critical and emergency protection and care for a shorter period.

Being abandoned, unloved, not cared for, forgotten by everybody, that is a much greater hunger, much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. These are the category of children who come to Poussepin’s home. We with the help of the government, benefactors, and friends, Poussepin's home gives them "model programs", of education, health care, spiritual needs, cultural programs, and involvement in all the various activities necessary for the growth of these children. Poussepin’s home goal is to re-unite the children to their families. And this is the greatest challenge and long process, to search out the parents and counsel the parents, which takes years. And with the long process and preparation to send back the children to their own family. At present we have 5girls and 3staff...Sr.Suman is directly involved in it...
