KOREA: The Society of St. Francis de Sales in Korea this year dedicated its Jan. 8-16 annual Don Bosco basketball competition to commemorate the first death anniversary of Salesian Father John Lee Tae-seok. “This year, we aimed to raise funds for children in Sudan,” said Salesian Father Gabriel Oh Yun-taeg. Father John Lee Tae-seok had served the sick, poor and children in Sudan for nine years. Each year the basketball competition raises funds for poor children in and outside of Korea. About 600 youths participated in this year’s games. KO12888.1637
