Hwarang Raises 32,000 Dollars for Medical Missions

Hwarang Youth Foundation "Vision Concert" Progress

Hwarang Youth Foundation Founder (Howard Park), President (Sarah Park), and Student Leader (Julian Kim) have hosted the 9th Annual Vision Concert at Los Angeles Berendo Baptist Church.

The concert has raised 32,000 dollars to use for cataract surgeries in Southern America. Members of 18 chapters have continually fundraised to help provide funds for the medical mission trips.

This coming June, the medical mission team is to set out to provide services to families of South America. Student volunteers will provide free coding lessons to help diversify learning opportunities for underprivileged communities.

Additionally, the Northern California Silicon Valley District members have hosted their own Vision Festival, this past March. They have raised funds through recycling and the festival, in hopes of helping out. The Korean Hwarang chapters have joined the campaign, hoping to help students in Nepal, Philippines, and Cambodia.
