Korean Air’s volunteer group “Didimdol” flew to
the Bicol region of Philippines earlier this month to perform
volunteer work for the local community.
From 12 to 18 August 2018, members of Didimdol
joined the local residents to build homes and provide free meals
at local elementary schools and slum areas.
Volunteers also provided basic medicine and
nutritional supplements as the region lacks medical facilities.
Bicol encompasses the southern part of Luzon,
the largest island in Philippines, and is approximately 377km
away from Manila. The region was severely ravaged by typhoon
Rammasun in July 2014.
Currently, Korean Air has a total of 27
volunteer groups actively helping with 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 groups to perform
volunteer activities in various countries, including
Philippines, Thailand and Mongolia.
