Duraebang - Anti-Trafficking Group in Korea



Check out the FB event page at:

This December, as we count down to the winter solstice, holidays of hope and a bright new year, Lila Yoga has partnered up with the House of Sharing International Outreach Team to raise funds for Duraebang, “My Sister’s Place,” an NGO that supports women trafficked into prostitution around US military bases in South Korea. Please make a donation on behalf of yourself, or as a gift for a loved one, that will go directly towards helping women victims of trafficking start their lives anew.

We are specifically raising funds to support their newest shelter, opened in July of 2009, that provides a safe haven, legal and logistical assistance to Filipino women trafficked into Korea.

For more information on the shelter and trafficking in Korea, visit:

The shelter is in need of financial assistance, as are the individual women who are staying there. All funds raised by January 1st will be passed directly to Duraebang—50% will go to running the shelter, and the remaining 50% will be given directly to the women residing in the shelter.

Please give what you can, and please invite your friends and family to do the same. This holiday season we can make a real difference for gender equality by supporting women victims of trafficking.

**If you wish to make a donation on behalf of someone else as a holiday gift, you can request a commemorative electronic certificate in her/his name marking your donation. If you wish to pursue this option, please include the information in an email after you make your donation and I will email it to you directly!**

If you are in Korea, you can donate by direct bank transfer to the following account:

Bank: KB Bank (Kookmin Unhaeng)
Account #: 368102-01-146063

If you are international or prefer to use Paypal, you will find a live link to donate through paypal on our website at:

Please email us at when you make your donation, with your name and donation amount, and let me know if you’d like a commemorative certificate (electronic through email) if you are donating on behalf of someone else. I will be handling all donations directly, with the clearance of Duraebang, and giving them the total at the end of the donation period. Information about all monies raised and given to Duraebang will be made available on January 1st, 2010 on our website at
