Korean Air staff have been providing practical support to under-privileged communities across Asia this month, under the airline’s CSR campaign.
Employees worked alongside 50 local residents in the Philippines’ Bicol region from 21-27 August to provide aid to the local community. Bicol, a remote peninsula in the northern part of Luzon, was severely impacted by Typhoon Rammasun in 2014, and living conditions remain unsafe for many.
The Korean Air team helped to build shelters and provide free meals for local residents and students, as well as installing solar-powered street lamps to improve safety.
And in the same week, Korean Air staff travelled to Mongolia to donate supplies to a local school. Thirty computers along with desks and chairs were provided to a school in Baganuur, as part of the airline’s annual computer donation programme which started in 2013.
Korean Air has also been planting trees in Baganuur since 2004, and the area’s Korean Air Forest now extends to 440,000m², consisting of some 90,000 trees.
The airline’s CSR efforts have also seen it provide aid to flood victims in Myanmar, earthquake victims in Nepal and other disaster-affected communities across Asia.
