Public Announcement: Reduced Services

 Dear All InKAS members,

This year marks InKAS’ 12 years of devoted service to the Korean Adoptive community at large. Unfortunately due to the Ministry of Social Welfare’s unexpected budget cut for post adoption agencies, such as InKAS, we are publically announcing our service downsizing.

In order to amplify the efficiency of our post adoption services, we will be centralizing our reduced labor force towards more professional and urgent tasks headed towards new change for the future of this adoptive community. Our hope is to soon enough retain more budgets so that we can reestablish some of our lost services and extend our services even greater than before.

However for the time being, it is with regret that InKAS will be temporarily eliminating some our most favored services, such as: 

1.    BIRTH SEARCH

2.    Haircut Service

3.    Rental Phone Service

4.    Bank service

These services we have currently eliminated, are services that will now be attended at your own disposal.

InKAS recognizes that our most sought after services are the birth search requests. However, please understand that this service will be no longer offered. We will only assist you with translation services and counseling services needed for the reunion meeting.

InKAS is sorry to inform you of our unfavorable circumstance and we hope to assist you better in the near future.

Sincerely,

President Aie Ree Jung

InKAS New website

InKAS has now opened a new website!! :D

We hope that this new site will make it easier for you to navigate and find the information you are looking for. Also when applying for services we have made it easier have a overview of what services are available and the status of your application, you will find this in My Applications. We will be continuously updating the website with fresh information and features to improve the communication with the InKAS members.

Please take a good look at My Account page and correct the missing or wrong information about you. Especially check your Type of member and select Adoptee or what ever your type of membership is. That would help us a lot. You can also see your payment status, a lot of our members haven't paid their membership due to some how complicated payment process. This should be easy enough and automatically updates your payment status so you can apply for InKAS services.

Note that the previous address www.inkas.or.kr will not be used anymore, www.inkas.org is now on the valid address.

The website is still fresh and as any other website unpredicted problems may occur, if so please notify us and we will fix it.

Our email is still the same, inkas21@yahoo.co.kr.

If you have any thoughts you would like to share, please leave a comment below (first login).
