Korean Re Joined Relief Efforts to Support Ukrainian Refugees
Korean Re donated KRW 50 million to World Vision Korea to support emergency relief for children and families displaced by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
World Vision International is a worldwide non-profit organization dedicated to humanitarian aid and development support. Its emergency response to the Ukraine crisis focuses on supporting refugees in Romania and other neighboring countries by providing them with temporary shelters and essential aid such as emergency assistance packages, drinking water, educational and psychological support, and medical supplies.
President Andrew Morley of World Vision International made a personal visit to refugees in border areas in Romania and called on the international community via Twitter to support people affected by the conflict. Shortly, World Vision Korea has launched a donation initiative in support of Ukrainian refugees.
Korean Re has been strongly committed to creating shared value through a wide range of social support programs including community engagement, volunteering for international disaster relief, and financial assistance for a local child welfare center in Vietnam.
CEO Jong-Gyu Won of Korean Re said, “Recognizing the urgency of the current situation, we have made an immediate decision to support the emergency response by World Vision so as to help alleviate the suffering of Ukrainian people displaced by the crisis. We pray and hope for a swift and peaceful end to the war.”
