KT announced on the 14th that it will donate 1 billion won to support the restoration of communities affected by the recent torrential rain. The donation will be sent to the Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association to help restore flood-stricken areas and help victims.
KT executives and employees are also helping to recover from the flood damage. In order to help flood-stricken areas, the “Love Volunteer Group,” which consists of executives and employees, conducted a “Love Meal Tea” activity at the village center in Saengchang-ri, Kimhwa-eup, Cheorwon-gun, Gangwon-do, from the 7th to distribute 130 servings a day of meals to the victims and volunteers who started disaster recovery.
In addition, in order to revitalize the local commercial districts that have been stagnant due to the long rainy season, KT’s nationwide regional headquarters has created a “Love Lunch Box” to help restaurants in flood-stricken areas, providing them with sweaty volunteers to recover from the flood-stricken areas and helping them recover quickly.
In order to help fruit farmers who were hit directly by the flood and share the pain, KT bought a large amount of fruit at the company level, distributed it to employees, and received voluntary donations by setting up a fund-raising box.
In order to help victims who have moved to evacuation facilities, mobile phone charging services are also being provided in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province, and Gokseong-gun, South Jeolla Province.
A KT official said, “We have started to share our thoughts with all our executives and employees to help normalize the troubled community as soon as possible due to the damage caused by the flood,” adding, “We will do our best as a national company and join the people through community service activities as well as donations.”
