The representative of SLS Korea Dr. Shin Myung Seop and director Jeong Chung-shin visited Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, where medical outreach will be conducted, and had a meeting with the hospital officials. In the meeting, Dr. Shin gave a presentation on Healing Hands describing its purpose and foundation, followed by a presentation on the procedural plans for the medical mission.
