We are trying to help prostitutes, former prostitutes and women who are living with US soldiers to find new hope and self-respect and a new sense of life, by spreading and living the gospel through charity and humanity.



All red light districts attached to U.S Military bases are becoming international, supporting prostitutes from countries such as the Phillippines, Thailand, Russia and other countries as well as women from Korea. This is a big change from the past when vitually all the prostitutes were Korean. The U.S. military now has an increasing number of families and women among its personnel and they are actively discouraging soldiers from seeking out prostitutes. This has made the prostitute "business" very competitive. Korean women resent the "internationals" for "encoaching on their territory"
In the past many prostitutes gave birth to children in the hopes that the father would marry them and take them to the U.S. Recently the feelings of the prostitutes have changed. They no longer wish to have children and their power to prevent and curtail pregnancy has increased. Also, in recent years, subsidised government daycare and kindergarten programs have become more widely available, so the need for daycare and afterschool programs for the children of prostitutes has decreased.
Even more recently, due to the IMF crisis and the strain on family budgets, more and more desperate women are turning to prostitution to earn money. the average age of prostitutes is becoming younger and younger. And prostitution is spreading beyond the known "red light" districts as legitimate businesses such a massage palours and hostess bars become involved in the sex trade.



In the neighborhood of My Sister's Place, there are 30 to 40 Korean prostitutes and 40 Filipino prostitutes "employed" by 10 clubs. 80% of these women abuse alcohol and other drugs.
There are also 40 to 50 older, "retired" prostitutes between the ages of 40 to 70, who have poor health, poor relationship and work skills and no supportive family structure. Until they become 65, no government assistance is available to them. 90% have a history of alcohol and drug use.
