International Aid Korea ("IAK") is a non-profit Christian organization, founded in 2001 in the heart of the brestling South Korean peninsula. IAK works in close association with NGOs and medicine suppliers to facilitate the supply of medicines and medical equipments to the needy countries where poverty and suffering are still rampant.
International Medical Assistance!
IAK reaches beyond the borders of Korean peninsula! We reach out our hand of help to 23 different Asian/African countries so far. Our headquarters, situated in the center of the Seoul Metropolitan City, serves as the base of operations for our growing charity. Our location in South Korea is very stretegic in order to meet the needs of the neighbouring South Asian countries. Through this ministry of compassion, we humbly strive hard to show the love of Christ in action.
Driven by our comitment to the comission of our Lord Jesus Christ: "Love your neighbours as yourself" (Matthew 22:39), IAK reaches out to help the sick and suffering people, malnourished children, handicaped people, North Korean defectors, foreign workers who need medical care, people in disaster-strucken regions, that they may know the love of Christ and receive His gift of eternal life.
Sustainable as well as quality health care for the suffering and Sick people in the Domestic, North Korea and Asia.
We, at IAK, call our brief history of helping the needy as "Love Foot Print." It is simply the facts and statistics of our past contributions which were aimed at alliviating the pain of the suffering world. It is only through the generous support of individuals, churches, businesses and foundations that IAK is able to improve the health and welfare of people in need around the world.
