Club members of Korea Jeju Region have been working to support and show meaningful appreciation to the medical staff on the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus.
Building Today for a Better Tomorrow
YMI is oriented to serving the worldwide YMCA and the communities in which
it is present throughout the world.
Support Across Borders
We are playing a key role in sustainable development through the “Time of Fast” Global Project Fund and in our partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to fight malaria in endemic countries.
The RBM Partnership to End Malaria is calling on countries to act now to save almost 400,000 additional lives from malaria as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a gesture of international solidarity at this time of crisis, subsidies supporting 21 projects have been approved.
About 90% of local club support stays in the local community – either through support to the local YMCA or through direct community support (most often a combination of the two). Annually, such support is estimated at close to US$ 4 million – plus numerous hours of volunteer service work.
