The Korea Foundation COVID-19 Survival Box
Over a period of several weeks in October and November, more than 550 returned Peace Corps Korea volunteers each received a COVID-19 Survival Box (see photo to right.)
Accompanying these gifts was a letter from Guen Lee, President of The Korea Foundation, which started as follows:
Greetings from Seoul!
The Korea Foundation regrets that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to meet you in South Korea this year.
Instead, with the spirit of greetings and goodwill, we have prepared a KF COVID-19 Survival Box for you, including filtered face masks and various gifts that we hope will remind you of Korea. It is our great pleasure to send these boxes to former Peace Corps Volunteers as a token of our gratitude for your dedication to Korea.
Volunteers were overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and generosity of these boxes....here are some links to the articles and stories in Korean and America media.
