MoP Project - a handful of rice

Our Troop - "Mudeung Scout HAM Club" is in Naju, Korea.
And there are many senior citizens who live alone here in Naju - rural area.

One day, Our troop members had a meeting to do A Community Service Project for these needy people around us and had started to collect and saved a Spoon of rice in a Jar every single day. It is a kind of Korean old Custom for Fund Raising. And we had collected not only rice. Saving pocket money, We Could collect coins also. And Finally Our Troop could set up a enough fund to buy 1,000Kg of Rice in half a year with a lot of support from the people around us. And on Aug 15, 2014. We donated these Rice to the Naju Community Health Center for these senior citizens who live alone in Naju.

A few days later, that project made a newspaper and a week later we had a interview with reporter from a National wide Radio Broadcasting Company(KBS) also. As a Scout, we are very proud of it and want to share this experience with all the people around us. And we will do our best to create a better world through another this kind of MoP Project.

우리 무등햄대의 무선국은 전남 나주시 성북동에 있으며 캠프장은 인근 다시면 가운리에 있습니다. 주변에는 나이가 드시고 별다른 소득이 없어 생활이 어려우신 분들이 있습니다.

조금이나마 이분 들을 도을 방법이 없을까 생각하다 할머니에게 들은 적이 있는 『좀도리단지』에 쌀을 모으기로 하였습니다. 그러나 쌀 뿐만 아니라 단지모양의 저금통에 쓰지 않는 동전과 절약한 용돈 등을 모았습니다.

이렇게 각자 모은 『좀도리단지』저금통을 모아 나주산 쌀 1,000kg을 구입하였습니다. 2014년 8월 15일, 지역의 저소득층 불우이웃을 위하여 전남 나주시 보건소에 기탁하였습니다. 1,000kg의 목표를 세웠을 때는 아득히 많기만 느껴졌는데 대장님들까지 모두 한마음으로 도와주셔 목표를 이울 수가 있었습니다.

이일이 주위에 알려서 신문에 나오고 라디오 인터뷰까지 하게 되어 대원들의 분위기가 고조 되었습니다. 스카우트로서 남을 돕는 일은 당연한 것인데 신문에도 나오고 라디오에도 나와 가슴이 뿌듯하였습니다. 더 많은 분들이 도움을 받을 수 있도록 열심히 하겠습니다.
