Misil Whoi Widow's Home. In February of 1953 a group of UNKRA and voluntary agency officials formally opened a little community of 25 duplex houses on a hillside overlooking Pusan. (See previous photos from 800 on). To 57 widows of Christian clergymen it was the beginning of a new life and a chance to support themselves and their children. The Misil Whoi (sewing guild) received sewing machines from Church World Service, and $10,000 toward construction of the Mother and Child House Settlement from UNKRA. During the fighting, UNCACK (now KCAC) bought most of the guild's output of hospital sheets. Now the widows sell their produce - yard goods, eiderdowns and hand towels - on the open market.
