Kang Kyong Su has worked at the Songdowon International Children’s Camp for 30 years as a boilerman.

Once, a friend of his asked him whether he liked so much to work as a boilerman in the place unnoticed by others.

He replied: I think what is important is not what one does but that one does for whom. I am happy to work for the children.

During his military service he participated in the renovation project of the camp and, after being demobilized, he became a boilerman of the camp.

After possessing high skills working as a heat controller for scores of years, he ensured normal operation of not only boilers but many other facilities. He became skilled also in welding.

An official of the camp asked him if it would be a good idea if he joined the management staff of the camp as he had a long career and high skills. But he refused as he felt remorseful for having failed to train workers skilled in handling their facilities. Later he worked hard to train skilled workers.

During his career, he contributed to economizing on electricity and increasing the lifespan of the facilities by presenting several ideas for technical innovation.

On July 5, 2014, he had a photograph taken with the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , who visited the camp, and participated in a national meeting.

He was awarded the title of a Merited Person of Socialist Patriotism.

His is an example in the socialist system of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, which puts forward even ordinary workers who have devoted themselves for the prosperity of their country as persons of merit recognized by the whole country.
