Send to friendSend to friend

In 2009, BASS supported the Myongdo St. Columban's Home.

Once completed, St. Columban’s will become a home for five severely handicapped young people, a Daycare Centre for 15 severely handicapped youngsters, and will provide independent living accommodation (under limited supervision) for 20 people with disabilities who are in open employment.

St. Columban’s Home will also act as a centre for child assessment and early intervention education. 

Sister Gerardine, who in 2008 was chosen by a major foreign company as "Dynamic Person of the Year", will be in charge. She also runs the Myongdo Welfare Centre and its extensive Out Reach Programme. BASS has supported the Welfare Centre in past years.

St. Columban's home is being built on land already owned by the organisation.
