Myongdo (The Bright Way) Welfare Center, at Mokpo, Shin-An area, was founded in 1985. In the society of our time, there is much disregard for human life in all its forms. The dignity of human person is so often ignored or placed on the lowest rung of priorities; people can be regarded as tools to be used, rather than gifts to be respected, nourished, and encouraged to reach their full potential without any question of discrimination.
The Day Centre, started by Sister Geradine Ryan, Columban Sisters, recognizes and promotes the dignity of the human person by providing the right environment for 800 children and adults with disabilities. In Korea, they have been working for a more inclusive society through educational and work rehabilitation and social integration programmes for people with Learning Difficulties.
