Message from the Chairwoman of MANNAM
MANNAM is a volunteer organization whose goal is succinctly defined in our motto, our rallying cry, our call to arms: When Light Meets Light there is Victory. Our mission is to bring all people of different nationalities, creeds and cultures together through volunteering and to learn and understand about each other: when good things come together, the result will be even greater – world peace.
We volunteer silently and without fanfare. We do our work behind the scenes. We do not work for accolades or self aggrandisement; our lights are hidden. Likewise, all this is made possible through the anonymous yet wonderfully generous contributions of those many individuals who support our organization, some 100,000 across the world as of start of 2013.
Korea has long been known as the country of courteous people in the East and the 'land that does not forget kindness'. Our aim is to spread our vision and the goodness in this culture across borders. We want to bring the light of love across the globe and from this will come cries of "Victory!"
Wherever there is a place that requires love and sacrifice, our desire is to be there, wherever it may be. These are the principles instilled into our organization by our Honorary Chairman, Mr. Lee. We hope you will be our steadfast companions on the journey yet to be traveled.
