Free of charge hospital
for those who are in need
Holy Family Welfare Hospital

Holy Family Welfare Hospital is a free of charge hospital run by the Catholic order, the Little Servants of the Holy Family. Our hospital serves those who are suffering from illness and poverty. We do not receive government funds but run entirely on donations.
With our staff, volunteers, and benefactors, we seek to create miracles everyday for our brothers and sisters in need.

Conversion from regular hospital to welfare hospital

We surveyed the local community to start a hospital for those in need; we found that many of our neighbors lived in poverty and illness without medical care.

Foundation of the Little Servants of the Holy Family

The Little Servants of the Holy Family was founded on Dec 25th of 1943 by a member the Foreign Missionary of Paris, Father Pierre Singer (1910-1992), becoming the first local Catholic order in Seoul.
At the time of foundation, Korea was deeply under the influence of the Second Great War; Father Singer witnessed numerous orphans, injured soldiers, and the elderly with whom nobody to provide care. Father Singer established the order to give care to the poor. Members of the Little Servants of the Holy Family are dispatched to the poor, and we perform the mission of our Lord through compassion.
