 KASEC's COVID-19 FUND 모금. WE NEED YOUR HELP !

                                                                                    

발달장애학생과 가족을 위해 여러분의 도움이 필요합니다!


안녕하세요? 한미특수교육센터/한인발달장애센터 소장 로사 장입니다.

Corona Pandemic 이 장기화 되면서 우리 모두 ‘사회적 거리두기’라는 생활방식에 힘겹게 적응해 나가고 있습니다. 그러나 한인 발달장애 가정은 도리어 ‘사회적인 고립’ 상황에 놓여 있습니다. 현재 발달장애 가정들은 부모님이 종일 자녀를 직접 돌보느라 식료품과 생필품을 구하기 어려울 뿐 아니라, 무엇보다도 지속적으로 이어져야 할 학교 교육과 치료가 중단되면서 여러가지 행동 문제가 심화됨에 따라 부모님이 가정에서 감당하기가 매우 벅친 상황입니다.
 
이렇듯 이중삼중의 어려움을 겪는 발달장애 가정을 위해 저희 센터는  지난 한 달여간  긴급한 자원과 정보를 제공하고자 애써  왔습니다. 특별히 California Senator Ling Ling Chang 과 La Brea Bakery 후원으로 빵과 Pastry를, Sempra Energy의 기금과KASEC이사회의 후원으로 쌀, 라면, 김치, 마스크, 비누 등을 2회에 걸쳐 약 300명의 발달장애인들에게 전달할 수 있었습니다.
 

이처럼 발달장애인들을 위한 식료품 지원 및 교육과 치료를 위한 프로그램이 절실하지만 센터 역시 이 일을 위한 재정적인 여력과 지원이 전혀 없는 상태입니다. 그래서 긴급한 방안을 모색하던 끝에 KASEC COVID-19 Fund를 마련하게 되었습니다. 저희 센터가 발달장애인들에게 소중한 서비스들을 지속할 수 있도록 KASEC COVID-19 Fund 모금에 도움 주시기를 간곡히 부탁드립니다.

 

  KASEC COVID-19 Fund 를 통해 

  1. LA/OC 지역의 도움이 필요한 발달장애인 가정에 식료품과 마스크, 손세정제, 생필품을 구입해서 제공합니다.

  2. 한인 Community 웹사이트 (www.missyusa.com)의 KASEC 발달장애정보 게시판 서비스를 구입하여 부모님이 가정에서 자녀를 돌보는데 필수적인  정보를 한국어로 제공합니다.

  3. 교육과 치료가 중단된 학생들을 위해  YouTube Online Education Program 을 센터의 특수교육전문가들이 개발하여 제공합니다.

이 어려운 시기에 여러분들께서 큰 사랑과 관심으로 보내주시는 후원금은 어느 때보다도 절실히 도움이 필요한 우리 학생들의 교육과 치료를 위해 좋은 프로그램을 제공하고 식료품과 생필품을 지원하는 데 소중히 잘 사용할 것을 약속드립니다. 특별히 이 Fund에 도움을주시는 개인이나 단체의 이름은 저희가 제작하는 YouTube 영상에 Supporter로서 소개됩니다.

물리적 거리를 지키고자 하는 우리 모두의 노력을 통해 이 어려운 시기도 곧 지나갈 것이라 믿습니다. 건강하게 이 시간을 잘 이겨내시기 바랍니다.

We Need Your Help for the individuals with Developmental Disabilities!

 

Greetings, this is Rosa Chang, the Executive Director of Korean American Special Education Center.

As the COVID-19 pandemic prolonged, we have been struggling to adapt to the new normal ‘social distance’ lifestyle. However, this circumstance has created ‘social isolation’ for Korean American developmental disability community. Currently, many of our community families struggle to obtain essential food and necessities because the parents have to constantly watch and provide care for their children with developmental disability. Furthermore, due to the suspension of all therapies, schools and extracurricular activities, children with developmental disabilities engage in intensified behavioral problems at home. 

To attend and assist these challenges, KASEC has been on its feet to provide up-to-date information and urgent resources over the past month. In particular, we distributed bread and pastries donated by California Senator Ling Ling Chang and La Brea Bakery, and rice, ramen, kimchi, masks, and soaps sponsored by Sempra Energy’s nonprofit grant. Overall, we have served about 300 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families over the period of a month.

The need is clear for the local Korean American developmental disability community, yet KASEC lacks the financial resources and support for such work to be sustained. Hence, KASEC COVID-19 Fund was established to mend the essential needs of our community. We sincerely ask for your generous contribution to KASEC COVID-19 Fund, so we can continue to provide valuable services to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. 

 

  With KASEC COVID-19 Fund, we will  

  1. Purchase and distribute the essential necessities (food, masks, hand sanitizers, goods) to LA and OC developmental disability community

  2. Purchase a section in Korean American community website (www.missyusa.com) to continuously provide resources in Korean

  3. Create YouTube Online Education Programs and content with different experts to serve students with developmental disabilities

 

Below is a sample video of a special physical education program by Kevin Ma, KASEC’s Special Sports Coordinator.

Your contribution will be put to meaningful uses for supporting and empowering individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Any donation from individuals or foundations will be introduced as supporters in our YouTube videos.

Ways to make your contribution:

www.kasecca.org/donation/donate or send checks payable to Korean American Special Education Center (1661 N. Raymond Ave. Ste 109, Anaheim, CA 92806)

 

We believe that this challenging period will soon pass through our collective efforts of keeping the social distance. We sincerely hope you will stay safe, healthy and balanced.
