Officials from Korea’s Justice Ministry and Coast Guard wave their hands on Wednesday to welcome Afghans, who were evacuated from Kabul to Seoul in late August, to the Korea Coast Guard Academy based in Yeosu, South Jeolla — their new shelter for the next four months. The 391 Afghans were relocated from the National Human Resources Development Institute in Jincheon, North Chungcheong, to the new shelter in Yeosu, where they will participate in programs such as language classes and job search mentoring to help them adjust to life in Korea. The group of Afghan citizens are those who in recent years have worked with the Korean government — be it on development and reconstruction projects in rural areas, in joint medical operations or at the Korean embassy — and their relatives.
