Sending off taekwondo volunteers

Paraguayan Ambassador to Korea Ceferino Valdez, center, poses with volunteers of the World Taekwondo Peace Corps, pose for a photo in his
residence in Seoul, July 8, prior to their departure to Paraguay. The corps founded in 2007 was established to add support to the national branding campaigns, which were aggressively undertaken during the former President Lee Myung-bak administration. The first batch of volunteers was dispatched in 2008. Overall, more than 1,000 have been sent overseas,
and Paraguay has received eight volunteers.
