Originally begun by the volunteer expat organization FOCUS (Foreigners’ Community Service) as the Medical and Counseling Emergency Hotline, the service was taken over by SMG in 2004 when the FOCUS board determined that the organisation was no longer needed. MRS is now run by the Seoul Gobal Center.
