A FIRST FOR KOREAN AIR

This marks the first Korean Air’s home building project in Southeast Asia.

On October 19, a group of 20 Korean Air Philippines employees and outsourced staff gathered at the Manila office and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Philippines to help build homes for low-income families and informal settler families (ISF) living in the poor dumpsite areas in Payatas, Quezon City.

REAL HARD WORK



This was truly hard work.

At the construction site at Bistekville 1, the volunteers worked together under sweat and smile as they carried bricks, sand water and cement around the site.

With their great efforts in mixing mortar, making roofs and woodwork, huts started to come into shape bringing hopes and homes to the community.

Sang Wook Bae, Regional Manager of Korean Air in Philippines said, “The spontaneous and sincere participation of our employees demonstrated Korean Air’s objective of fulfilling our corporate social responsibility in the local community of the Philippines."

He added: "The campaign also helped us promote team building and leadership behavior within Korean Air. We hope to continue the home building project in the future, not only in the Philippines but also in other destinations across Southeast Asia, contributing to build a sustainable community for the underprivileged.”

A GENEROUS AIRLINE



Apart from lending the physical support from its staff members, Korean Air also offered various construction materials and donations for Habitat for Humanity Philippines in building the houses.

Once the donated housing unit is completed, Korean Air will be invited to attend the formal turnover ceremony.

A VALUED SPONSOR

Korean Air has been supporting Habitat for Humanity Korea since 2001 through donations, both monetary and air tickets, in support of the home building projects in Korea.

Since 2004, Korean Air further extended its support by inviting staff members and their families to provide volunteer service at house building sites.

Every year, Korean Air recruits employee volunteers and receives popular demand for the programme. The company also bears all the costs necessary for participation.

So far a total of 13 housing units have been completed across the country.
