TOPIK (Towards Peace in Korea) is the Anglican Communion’s official outreach to North Korea. Since 2007 TOPIK has participated in various humanitarian aid projects in North Korea.
As part of its fundraising efforts to assist supplying medical supplies for two clinics in the Rason area in the northeast of North Korea, one hundred sets of reversible stoles have been made at a sewing workshop in Rajin City within the Rason area. These sets of two reversible stoles in traditional style with golden embroidery are now on sale for €65 per set.
The Very Reverend Paul Mooney, Dean of Ferns, who has family links with Korea, is encouraging people to buy them.
“Clergy may wish to purchase stoles for themselves or for their churches. Parishioners or friends of our various churches may wish to purchase a set of stoles in memory of a departed loved one or as a thank offering,” he says.
Sets of stoles can be purchased by making cheques for €65 plus €3 postage and packing payable to the Cashel Ossory Board of Mission and Unity and posting to:
