ChildFund Korea

Headquarters: Korea
Active: in 30 countries

ChildFund Korea is one of the most influential international nongovernmental organizations in the Republic of Korea working for the welfare of children.

ChildFund Korea started its relief work in 1948 under the name of the Christian Children’s Fund (which later became ChildFund Alliance). ChildFund Korea expanded its programs to child protection and has played a crucial role in developing child welfare systems. It has continuously looked after children in poverty and their rights.

The scope of ChildFund Korea ranges from domestic to overseas, including in North Korea. In its domestic programs, ChildFund Korea not only provides financial, physical and emotional support for children with mental and physical disabilities but also focuses on child rights advocacy projects and raises public awareness of the importance of child rights and participation. Our work led to domestic policy changes regarding child legal issues and had a huge impact on the Korean welfare system. ChildFund Korea has been working in over 30 countries to help deprived, excluded and vulnerable children, families and communities through meaningful, sustainable solutions. ChildFund Korea has also engaged in various activities domestically to promote the rights of children with 20 Regional Headquarters, 7 Community Welfare Centers, 6 Foster Care Centers, 5 Child Protection Agencies, 3 Hansarang Welfare institutes for the disabled, 1 Siheung Daoulim Children’s Centers.

ChildFund Korea’s professionalism and commitment to the protection of children are widely known in the Republic of Korea and internationally. ChildFund Korea is proud to be part of the international effort to fight for children’s rights as a ChildFund Alliance member.
