Orphanages - Pre-1950

 
The creation of orphanages in Korea did not begin with the Korean War. Some existed even at the turn of the century. For its historical value we present herewith the information we gathered on those orphanages that existed prior to 1950. This information is extracted from documents found in the archives of the Christian Children's Fund in Richmond, VA.
