Movement for the Advancement of Cultural-diversity of Koreans
M.A.C.K Then and Now
M.A.C.K. formally, Mission for Amerasian Children of Korea, was formed on September 1995 in Chicago Illinois. It was the very first non-denominational missionary work relying totally on volunteers from all walks of life; it has not boundaries, just as love knows no limits.
M.A.C.K. was conceived by a group of laywomen whose undying motherly care and interests dictated a mission for a better understanding of children born to dual cultural parentage and the cultural barrier affecting them. Moreover, to harbor and to heightened compassion and understanding by all towards the plight of Amerasians.
The vision of M.A.C.K. has grown and as such has expanded its mission. In addition it has changed the meaning of its acronym in order to reflect the new direction of the foundation.
M.A.C.K. formally, Mission for Amerasian Children of Korea, in order to meet the needs of a new and growing generation of multiethnic Koreans both aboard and in Korea now stands for Movement for the Advancement of Cultural-diversity of Koreans.
