           Do you know the recent case of the mother and her daughters in Song-pa? The incident happened in 2014 when a mother and her two daughters who had been living in the basement of a house in Songpa-gu, Seoul, committed suicide, leaving behind an envelope containing 700,000 won and a suicide note. In the suicide note, the mother wrote, 'This is the last rent payment and utility bill. I'm really sorry.' Although in the wake of the incident the basic livelihood system has changed to some extent, 5 years after the Song-pa incident many people are still in the blind spot of welfare. The welfare system needs to be improved, so CAH would like to look into some of its problems.
           Is the above-mentioned incident just someone else’s business? In Korea, where the welfare system is not properly supported, anyone can become poor in an instant. Living in this state of precariousness will eventually lead to a life in anxiety.  Although there is a health insurance system, medical welfare is not working properly in the countryside due to the serious lack of access to medical services. In addition, the problem has become even more serious as medical insurance eligibility has been determined according to unrealistic criteria. Therefore, Korea should face the reality that welfare blind spots are rampant that welfare blind spots are rampant, even in order to check the current welfare system and move toward a better country to live in. To do so, the government must recognize that there is a blind spot in the country’s welfare system and conduct on-site inspections to see if the existing welfare system works well. In the future, the government will have to come up with measures not just for the present but also for the future in order to assess how the benefits will be divided among the people. Since society is always changing technologically and culturally, it is also necessary to proactively study side effects and invest in related areas.

           A blind spot in welfare is not a matter to care about just because you are living well now. The existence of such blind spots can always be their target, and this anxiety makes the people living in society extremely impoverished. Only with a safety net that guarantees basic survival and life, will anyone be able to live happily and pursue a new life that entails risk. The Republic of Korea should now go beyond economic development to help its people enjoy a better sense of stability.
