Through our PYONGYANG SPINE REHABILITATION CENTER (PYSRC) program that was launched in 2012, IGNIS Community has witnessed breakthroughs in North Korea as cerebral palsy treatment was first pioneered in the country through Dr. Stephen Yoon's encounter with one young girl with cerebral palsy (Read about Bok-Shin) in Rajin, North Korea. Since then, our vision for PYSRC has been coming to life as we have treated children with cerebral palsy & autism aged as young as 4 months old to growing teenagers from provinces all over North Korea.
Construction for the actual PYSRC building began in 2013 by the help of many donors and grants all over the world. As of March 2017, we have just the interior left to finish. While waiting for the completion of the center, we currently have around eight patients with cerebral palsy and autism being treated in a small 10'x10' room inside the Kim Il Sung University's Pyongyang Medical School Hospital.
The goal of this campaign is to raise $15,000 to fill the new therapy center with appropriate furniture, therapy equipment and toys. These items are not available within North Korea, but are necessary for therapy to be effective and engaging for the children, their families and the therapists. Once our 5-story building is completed, we will be able to open up the facility to treat hundreds of new patients from all over the country.
We invite you to partner with us to raise awareness and funds for cerebral palsy and autism in North Korea.
The mission of PYSRC is to raise up children that are suffering from Cerebral Palsy and Autism in North Korea and to set up the foundation for rehabilitation education.
Previously, we had difficulties in serving the children with Cerebral Palsy due to the lack of space and facility. With the construction of PYSRC we will be able to reach out further and build the children's full potential as contributing members of their society.
IGNIS also supports Cerebral Palsy clinics in 12 hospitals across the country.
With full permission from the North Korean government, IGNIS travels into NK on a weekly basis to provide food for children at nurseries and kindergartens, as well as medicine and supplies to clinics in the rural villages of Rajin.
Since 2008, we have restored & rebuilt many schools and clinics in remote areas to provide for the needs of the poor, young, old and sick who are most susceptible to malnutrition and inadequate health care.
Throughout the year, we promote a number of other projects including the maintenance & construction of the buildings and supplying coal & wood to families for heating in the winter months.
Did you know winter temperature in North Korea can drop to -22º Fahrenheit (-33º Celsius)? With a lack of winter shoes, children in NK are at risk of getting frostbite and hypothermia.
But...you can now donate just $10 and deliver a warm pair of WINTER BOOTS to a child in North Korea!
This year, our goal is to donate 50,000 pairs of winter boots to 50,000 children. To do that, we aim to raise $500,000 before this coming winter!
WOULD YOU PARTNER WITH US TO SHARE A WARM WINTER WITH CHILDREN IN NK?
Our purpose is to share and show love to our North Korean neighbors.
