Korean Air volunteers to help residents at Bicol, Philippines

August 30, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Korean Air’s volunteer groups, ‘Didimdol’ and ‘Sarangnanum’ flew to the Philippines in order to continue its volunteering activity of the year. On 20th August, 25 members of the groups went to Bicol region in the Philippines for a week, to help out the local community and to bring people together as a symbol of hope, in addition to building a better future for the beneficiaries.

Bicol is the southern part of Luzon which is the largest island in the Philippines, approximately 377km away from Manila. The region was ravaged by the typhoon Rammasun in July of 2014, and the place is still under recovery. Since 2005, Korean Air’s volunteer group has been building shelters for residents against the threat of a typhoon, and providing free meals for the local residents. In addition, volunteers have built solar heat light bulbs in mountain villages for road safety at night, as well as provided basic drugs and medicines to help prepare for any medical emergencies.

Korean Air said, “We take pride in engaging the community and participating in schemes that benefit them in immeasurable ways, such as providing worldwide disaster relief. We have responded to flooding, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and explosions worldwide. We have made a promise to continue to do our utmost to give back to the communities at home and abroad, improving the lives of those in need and cultivating a better tomorrow for the world.”

Currently, Korean Air has a total of 27 volunteer groups which actively perform in an array of volunteer projects and community programs at orphanages, rehabilitation centers for the disabled, as well as senior care centers to support disadvantaged groups. The airline actively encourages and supports these groups to perform volunteer acts in various countries, including Thailand, Mongolia and Indonesia, providing relief support and demonstrating its commitment to promote sustainable development of the community and the environment.

As a leading global carrier, Korean Air will continuously support global volunteer activities in order to perform its corporate social responsibility as part of company’s initiatives to give back to the society.
