Alvogen Korea donated funds

Alvogen Korea (Country manager, Young-Hee Chang) announced today that it has donated KRW54 million to the Social Welfare Organization Community Chest of Korea (CCK) to help youth who leave the community group homes.

The money was raised through employees’ donations for the last two years since 2016 as well as the proceeds from bazar events which took place at major local operations of the company across the nation, including the head office in Seoul, earlier this month. It will be used for medical expense support for teens who turn 18 years old and leave CCK group homes.  

Alvogen Korea’s tie with CCK goes back to 2014 when the company initially donated KRW10 million. Since then, it has maintained the relationship for giving, including donations of KRW280 million-worth pharmaceutical products for underprivileged families, and will continue its giving and sharing activities with CCK in the future.

On behalf of communities, I would like to extend our gratitude to Alvogen Korea and its employees for their warm hearts and wholeheartedness,” said Hyo-Jin Kim, Director of the Social Welfare Organization Community Chest of Korea. “The kindness Alvogen Korea employees have shown to us will be a glow stick to make the world brighter for communities in need.”

“Youth are the driving force for the future of our society,” said Young-Hee Chang, Country manager of Alvogen Korea. “With this fund, we hope that we can add a small helping hand in guiding them to grow healthy. With our belief that our small actions can bring hope to neighbors, Alvogen Korea and its employees will more actively lead sharing activities for the communities where we live and work.”

As a part of Alvogen’s global corporate social responsibility program “Building a Better Planet,” Alvogen Korea has led initiatives and activities for local communities. In October 2017, employees working at 10 operations of the company including the head office in Yeoi-do, Seoul, teamed up with the Korean Federation for Environmental Movements for eco-friendly activities, planting trees and cleaning.

In November 2017, a volunteer group consisting of dozens of employees made and delivered kimchi to children and neighbors in need. For the children in need, they visited a local child care center early this year to replace old desks and chairs with new ones and paint classroom walls. In addition, employees participated in Korean Red Cross’ “Bread of Love” charity event to make and deliver breads to families in need. On December 8, 2017, the members of the company’s DIY club made a Christmas tree with young children who need an afterschool program as their parents are still at work.
