The Last Wish
Issue 38 | March 2016
Korea is the world's only divided country. As of 2015, the number of people in South and North Korea with families that have been separated by war is estimated at 66,289. Of them, 81.6% are seniors over the age of 70. Their last wish is to see the faces of their loved ones one last time before they die. And yet, there is nothing they can do but yearn for their families as they gaze upon old, faded photographs. To that end, an idea was developed to bring comfort to these families who have long been weary of the wait.
