Window on the Salesian world - Korea Mission Office


By Bro Mark Choi, SDB


Seoul, Korea, 26 September 2019 -- For the past 6 years we have witnessed the steadfast growth of the youngest Salesian Mission Office in the EAO region. Under the leadership of Fr. Michael Chang, Fr. Peter Kim, Fr. Isidore Hong, Fr. Raphael Lee and now with Br. Mark Choi, this 'Province window on the world' is growing in quality With two lay mission partners (Ms. Kim Da-Eun, Kim Young-Eun) some 5,000 donors and many other collaborators, mission assistance is reaching many part of the world.


Among the countries of the 2019 support plan we find South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and Zambia, Mongolia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Philippines, Vietnam, Peru and East Timor. It began with simple support focused on the Korean SDB missionaries, but now NANUM is open also to other destinations.


The international missionary volunteer action is also among the main activities. Every year some (young and not-so-young) missionary volunteers are sent to Mongolia, Malawi or other countries.


Aside from mission project fundraising, 'NANUM' (in Korean 'Sharing') Seoul Mission Office is involved in missionary animation, works closely with the Provincial Delegate for MA (Fr. Michael Chang), and promotes knowledge of the missions on social media (https://www.facebook.com/salesiomission).


The Mission Office is looking forward to better online connectivity with benefactors, also facilitating online donations. The Statutes of the NANUM mission office are being finalized in view of approval by the Provincial council in October.


The Mission Office is working closely with the 'Fr John Lee Memorial Foundation' (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004135036461) that was started some 10 years ago (preparing the 10th anniversary of Fr. John Lee death - 2020, January 10) to help the South Sudan mission. Now it is also open to Salesian Mission assistance beyond this 'original destination'.
