HYUNDAI Motor Co. (HMC) has donated $70,000 to Korea Food for the Hungry International (KFHI) in the 13th Hyundai Happy Move Global Volunteer Camp program. HARI Foundation Inc. (HFI), the corporate social responsibility arm of Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), said it supported HMC’s global campaign by involving participants of the Hyundai New Thinkers Circuit program.
HARI said 90 university students from Korea, together with HMC officials, recently went to San Isidro, Montalban, Rizal, to do volunteer work for the community. Their activities included constructing a new school and conducting learning activities for children.
HARI said that HMC and KFHI aim to combat poverty by uplifting the lives of communities through youth education and health and nutrition campaigns. KFHI is also actively engaged in disaster relief operations.
“The Hyundai Happy Move Global Youth Volunteer Camp expresses HMC’s humanitarian campaign to improve the lives of people living in less-fortunate and impoverished communities,” said Ho Seon Eo, manager of HMC’s corporate social responsibility department.
HFI President Fe Perez-Agudo said; “Like HMC, HFI is aware of the importance of education, more specifically climate science literacy, as the world needs a new generation of leaders that will not only face the problems, such as poverty, but also the threats of climate change.”
