Infant Orphanage Volunteer Activity

Eastern Babies’ Home of Eastern Social Welfare Society (ESWS) is an orphanage with approximately 35 babies aged 1 to 6 months, all awaiting adoption. Pediatric doctors, nurses and caregivers care for them but they still need volunteers who are able to hold them, talk to them, play with them and feed them.

Would you like to hold and care for babies who are awaiting adoption?

Schedule: weekly on Fridays 9 am – 12 pm (excluding the first Friday of the month)

Participants: Maximum 5 adult SIWA Members (age 20+), each time

Please Note:

  • Due to the babies’ weak immune system, a medical report must be obtained from your doctor stating you do not have a history of tuberculosis, typhoid or hepatitis (결핵, 장티푸스, 간염). This must be submitted in advance via email to orphanage@siwakorea.com.
  • All volunteers must be registered on the SIWA website prior to attending.
  • We encourage our volunteers to join us for the orphanage visits on a regular basis.
