On January 24, 2019, trainees at Hanawon participated in the
‘Rice-cake Soup Sharing Event’ at the Central Service Center of Korean
Red Cross. In the morning, they made rice cake soup and other Lunar
New Year foods to serve senior citizens in the neighborhood. In the
afternoon, they visited people in need including elderly persons
living alone to deliver the foods and gifts.
Hanawon has continually engaged in volunteer work to raise awareness
of the North Korean defectors in local communities and promote
communication between them and local residents, and it plans to
continue to push for various sharing events.
