로드중

is written as 嘉 in Chinese character

(means “remarkable,” “excellent,” and “happy”).

As this character is composed of “吉” 20 times (十, 十), it implies that

“it is beautiful as there is more good news.”

is written as 泉 in Chinese character

(means “source,” “source of life,” and “woman”).

It means the “will to make a life or world where luck and beauty well up.”

“Gachon” is the pen name for chairperson of Gachon Gil Foundation Lee Gil-ya,

given by Dr. Ryu Seung-guk, a former Chief of the Academy of Korean Studies.

아 어디쯤 왔을까?

“I sincerely welcome you to our website among millions of web sites on the internet.”

While I have met many people beyond time and space, I would like to share my life experiences
and hard times with my neighbors in the world.
Collecting my life’s memories here, I asked myself, “Am I opening too many personal materials?”
I have devoted my life as a doctor and educator.
Fortunately, thanks to my constant effort towards a single goal,
I have been able to foster many students who will lead the future of Korea
and felt happy in saving many lives in danger.
Today’s Gachon Gil Foundation is my other self with my sweat, tears, and passion.
However, this place is not designed to flatter someone.
I intend to look back on life’s meaning with you, while organizing my thoughts
built on one-way road under the philosophy of “philanthropy, service, and patriotism”.
I have always considered it, but confession is always not easy.

여러분! 저는 이곳이 '희망을 잉태하는 곳' 이라 불리기를 기대합니다.

여러분!

Flower seeds which are born there take root on the earth again and
make other blossoms.
Likewise, I have a small hope that my life’s philosophy of “philanthropy, public service, and patriotism”,
which are consistently penetrated here, can be deeply embedded in your heart and mind
and become the light of hope for the country and people.

“Through my life and philosophy, a flame of love and service can be sparked in the heart of everyone.”
That’s what I imagine as a paradise.
I am waiting for such a day and still dreaming it today.

Thank you very much.

Gachon Michuhall Youth Voluntary

Member of the Commission
on Youth Protection

Gachon Maternity Protection
Contribution – Lee Gil-ya Contribution

Since 1999, Gachon University Gil Medical Center has contributed a certain amount of money whenever a baby is born
to enhance women’s rights and use the contribution as fund for women’s welfare.

While you are on your road of life,
you will encounter both bright days and stormy and windy days.

However, if you continue making your effort, passion,
with undaunted challenging spirit,
no wind and storm will hinder your way forward.
I started my career from a small obstetrics & gynecology clinic and established Gachon Gil Foundation today,
and many people said that I am a “successful woman.”

However, I dare to say that people understand my life
as the life of a woman who has worked passionately, not the life of a successful woman.
To every Korean woman who is striving to lead her life at this very moment
and every great mother, I would like to give you my applause for encouragement.

“새우잠을 자더라도 고래 꿈을 꿔라”

For young people on this ground,
I would like to advise to
“dream like a whale even if you sleep curled like a shrimp!”

The 21st century is the global era and age of knowledge and information.
If anyone neglects self-innovation and cultivation of professional knowledge,
he or she cannot be the center of development.

Even if you find everything difficult and intimidating, keep heading forward and challenging yourself.
Do not put yourself in within a narrow fence, but run on the global stage.
As you are so young, you have infinite possibility.
Even if you sleep curled like a shrimp, dream like a whale.
