2022 MPAK Retreat (Adoption Camp) Held
After two years of absence due to the pandemic, MPAK was happy to hold our annual MPAK Retreat (Adoption Camp), for all the adoptive families, especially those children adopted from Korea.
The Retreat was held on July 29-31 (Fri - Sun) at the Forest Home, CA. Our retreat provided a family friendly environment where the kids can have fun with campfire and marshmallow roasting, water sports, zipline, sports & games, lots of foods, seminars for parents and teen adoptee time, and many more. Thanks to NCRC of Korea for sponsoring this event for adoptees and adoptive families.
Adoptee Citizenship Campaign
On Friday, July 8, 2022, MPAK held an event to continue to campaign for the adoptee citizenship. We strongly support that all the adoptees that came into the US legally through adoption should be granted the citizenship. Korean Women's International Network (Kowin) Pacific LA group joined MPAK in co-organizing this event. The event was sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Los Angeles, and the Overseas Korean Foundation (OKF).

2022 MPAK Fundraising Gala
“You Are In Our Hearts”- is the theme of this year's MPAK Fundraising Gala to let the children know that we haven't forgotten them and that they are in our hearts always despite the global pandemic.
The purpose of this fundraising event is to remember and place the needs of the children in our hearts and respond. The special needs orphans are the orphans with special physical/mental challenges, orphans that are aging out of the orphanage system, and the orphans with HIV disease.
And there are the orphans that were born from North Korean escapee women living in China. However, many of these women are captured and deported back to North Korea, never to be seen or heard again. This puts many of the children in danger, and many of them cannot get education beyond the high school level, making it difficult for them to stand in the world.
Join us and let us respond.
