They’re on the frontlines, dealing with Langley’s most vulnerable every day on the streets.

But thanks to a Korean Trade-Investment Agency (KOTRA) in Vancouver and a South Korean-base enterprise known as Ara EPS Co. LTD., they’re a little better equipped to help safeguard some in Langley against COVID.

A donation of masks and hand sanitizer was recently made to Kimz Angels and the Langley Vineyard Church.
