Who we are
AMIKO stands for Amutat Mitnadvim Israelim BeKoreanim (עמיקו: עמותת מתנדבים ישראלים וקוריאנים).
In another sense, the Hebrew word AMI (עמי) or ‘my people,’ which was used to refer to Israel in the Old Testament, and KO (קו) for Korea are put together to mean: Koreans serving, blessing, and comforting people of God.
Serving God by Serving Others
"Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matt. 20:28 NIV
Every Christian asked might have a different reason for serving God; different people are motivated by different things. But Jesus entire life was centered on serving God, and he came to serve! Jesus is all about serving, and God wants to make us like him, then it's pretty obvious that we should be all about serving as well.
We strive to serve unconditionally, one resident at a time. Serving has the power to overcome both visible and invisible disabilities. Our volunteers are here for that very purpose—to serve.
Visiting Holocaust Survivors
We have a great passion to bring LOVE for Holocaust Survivors, especially in Israel.
“For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.”
We are visiting Holocaust Survivors to alleviate loneliness, evaluating and meeting their needs, renovating their homes, and counting them as friends.
AMIKO programs its goals as follows:
Love Your Neighbour as Yourself!
