Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation
In 1950, Sang Man “Sam” Han, only six years old, found himself orphaned in war torn Korea. Living on the streets, forced to beg and relying on the kindness of strangers for sustenance and shelter, Sam soon realized he needed to find a way out and fend for his future. Fortunately, it was the compassion of these strangers that eventually led him from the streets of Seoul to the land of opportunity, the United States. Once established in the home of a loving family, Sam thrived in all aspects of life. Becoming a successful business man and the loving father of three wonderful children, Sam never forgot the daily struggle of orphaned children living on the streets.
After taking a fact finding mission to North Korea in early 2007, Sam started the Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation in honor of his adoptive father, Dr. Arthur Schneider, who always sought to provide for other people, especially those most in need. His simple, compassionate relationship with God and his community inspired those with whom he worked and whom he loved.
Although, neither Dr. Schneider nor Sam Han are still with us, it is their values and principles we still carry today. Their compassion, love and faith are the bedrocks of our work and the foundation as a whole and will remain central to all future endeavors.
