Kojan Church in Ansan, south of Seoul, plans to make 10,000 yellow ribbon badges to commemorate the tragic sinking of the Sewol ferry and to raise awareness about the importance of life.

Suwon parish will also hold an event titled, "Glory of Resurrection and Remember 2014/04/16" this Easter and distribute the ribbons.

This year, Easter falls on April 16, the third anniversary of the disaster that killed more than 300 people, mostly high school students heading to Jeju for a study trip.

The badge, to be produced by the parish, will symbolize the memory of the deceased, wish them to be reunited with God and spread the spirit of protecting lives.

The parish will distribute the badges to anyone who wants them. People just need to post a reason to get the ribbon on its Facebook page. The parish will invite those who left posts to the event and distribute the ribbons there.
