A Pastor Told Parents To Place Their Babies in A Box, And It Changed Everything

Unwanted children are being left to die in the streets of Korea at alarming rates. From 2012 to 2013, the amount of infants abandoned by parents rose 63%, with no signs of slowing down.

What one pastor decided to do has saved countless innocent lives, and helped put a hamper on a growing crisis.

Pastor Lee Jong-rak created a baby drop box, which opens like a mailbox on the outside of his church.

Parent’s can anonymously place their babies in the blanket and ring a bell to alert the staff of the child’s presence.

Hundreds of babies have been saved by the Pastor and his staff. They now receive 1-2 children per day.

Pastor Lee’s story has been chronicled by a documentary, appropriately titled: The Drop Box. The trailer below gives a touching look on this man’s remarkable deed which has saved countless innocent lives.
