This looks like an amazing documentary on caring for the orphan. Here is a description from the web-site for the movie:

“In December 2009, a Korean pastor named Lee Jong-rak built a wooden “drop box” on the outer wall of his home. But the box wasn’t intended for clothing, food, or school supplies, it was meant to collect unwanted babies.When “the drop box” “or “baby box” was constructed a few years ago, it flew completely under the radar of Korean government officials. However, as more and more children arrive in this box every week, the nation is starting to take notice.Lee knows that his little wooden box isn’t the best solution, but his plight points to a much larger issue of abandonment, both in Korea, and across the globe.As a simple man, with little education and no public notoriety, Lee was voiceless, much like the children he has sworn to protect.Soon, the whole world will know his story.”
