WE EXIST TO END CHILD ABANDONMENT IN SOUTH KOREA + CREATE A CULTURE OF LIFE AROUND THE WORLD.


OUR PASSION

Kindred Image is a non-profit organization that works to support the vision and legacy of a courageous pastor in South Korea. What began as a desperate one-man campaign to protect life in one small neighborhood is now an organized effort to love and serve mothers in crisis, and never see an abandoned child on the streets of Korea again. For the rest of the world, Kindred hopes to restore the idea of a God-given “kindred image,” thereby defending the dignity and value of all human lives.


OUR MODEL

PREVENTION

We want to put an end to abandonment but believe that this begins in the hearts of the people. Through story-based awareness, we work to change the cultural consciousness for the cause of life.

 

 

INTERVENTION

While working to change the surrounding culture, we meet mothers in crisis and offer alternatives to abortion and abandonment in unsafe places. Kindred staff members serve at the drop box site on a daily basis.

 

RESTORATION 

While engaging in crisis care, we also work to provide long-term solutions for single mothers and children left in the box. Through counseling, care packages, and adoption support, we are committed to holistic solutions.


ETHOS

  • We believe that everyone is made in the image of God and is, therefore, beloved, sacred, and precious.

  • We believe that Pastor Lee is a faithful father of the abandoned and protector of the least of these.

  • We believe God is the ultimate Father, who graciously sent His only son to save the broken and the lost. 

The fight for life is more than just political. In so many ways, it’s decided in the cultural imagination—and heroes like this provide the inspiration we need to replace cultures that spawned Kermit Gosnell, sewer pipes, child abandonment and forced abortions with a culture that looks more like the home of Pastor Lee Jong-rak. That, my friends, is overcoming evil with good.
