Hugging Cambodia 2015
Organized by: Yoojin Chun
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both adults and children in Cambodia every year. The WHO reports that the mortality rate of children under 15 suffering from cardiovascular disease is 36%. Hugging Cambodia is a non-profit organization in South Korea that provides both financial and medical assistance to those who suffer from this devastating disease while sharing the love of Christ through healing. Hugging Cambodia partners with South Korean doctors who provide medical assistance to their partner medical center in Cambodia. Along with the team of medical doctors, Hugging Cambodia also sends a missions team to spread the word and love of Christ to those who are receiving medical care along with their family members and surrounding villages. The medical center is always in need of surgical and medical supplies, and donations to help patients pay for medical care when they cannot afford it. The Hugging Cambodia Team raises money through an annual marathon that will be happening on the 30th of May, and this year we would like to raise money in the US to help with their efforts in South Korea. The team goal for 2015 is $50K and we'd love to contribute to that goal as much as we can! Any donation will be greatly appreciated!
