2022 MPAK Fundraising Gala
2022 MPAK Christmas Celebration Held
2023 "MOVE-ON" Event
For Aging-Out Orphans in Korea
MPAK Adoptive Family Christmas Celebration was held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at the Dongshin Presbyterian Church in Fullerton, CA.
The event was attended by fewer than the pre-Covid times, but nevertheless the families had great fun and enjoyed the night filled with sumptuous foods, a magic show, story sharing, and a gift exchange time for the kids.
MPAK has joined force with Love Beyond Orphanage and Orphans Love Association (고아사랑협회) to conduct a seminar to help the aging-out orphans in Korea to prepare to "Move-On" into the world, out from their orphanage care to emancipated life. Each year Korea faces around 2,500 young adults as they age-out of their orphanage systems when they turn 18 or older.
Often the youths don't know how to cope with the world. They struggle to find proper place of living, find jobs, or continue with advanced studies. They are greatly in need of information and assistance that will help them to start their new lives in the tough world. Our seminar is designed to equip the youth with essential information for them to get a good start for their future.

2022 MPAK Fundraising Gala Held
“You Are In Our Hearts”- was the theme of this year's MPAK Fundraising Gala, which was held on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at the Los Coyotes Country Club in Buena Park, CA. The event was held to let the children know that we haven't forgotten them and that they are in our hearts always despite the global pandemic.
270 people have joined this cause and we were able to raise nearly $290K. We were honored to have Pastor Lee of the Baby Box join us and bless our event. Also in attendance was our keynote speaker Dir. Choi Sunjoo of the Shin Myung Orphanage.
Mrs. Susan Kim, who adopted seven children, was honored with an Inspiration Award for raising her children despite the absence of her husband KC, who passed away seven years ago. Also honored was Mrs. Estee Song, who has worked so hard to make MPAK where it is today.
