At 11 AM on the 24th (Tuesday) of last month, Tongil Group held the “2017 Tongil Group Hope Dream Salary Round-Off Donation Ceremony” on the first floor of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification Headquarters building in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Approximately 30 people, including representatives of the Tongil Group employees and the donation beneficiaries, were present at the ceremony as the 57 million won collected from their salaries and 43 million won for a multicultural development fund, totaling 100 million won, was donated. Since they began collecting donations in 2012, they have gathered a grand total of 200 million won.




The head of Tongil Group’s Overseas Cooperation Headquarters, In-Yong Ryu, shared in his progress report, “The 1,411 employees who decided to participate in this project donated less than 10,000 won of their salary each month, totaling in 51 million won last year. We will collect votes from the public and the Tongil Group employees through a transparent online and offline process and select five areas that will receive the collected funds.”

 

Of this total amount, 20 million won was donated to the “building of Nepal Hope School,” 15.3 million won ($13,000 USD) was donated to the “Lebanon’s school for Syrian child refugees,” 14 million won was donated to “the creation of jobs for children of multicultural families,” 4.5 million won was donated to a “program to foster communication and understanding between the parents and adolescents of multicultural families,” and 3.2 million won was donated to “partnering with the Air Force to support the learning of children of low-income households.”




Tongil Group Chairman Yun-Ki Choi stated, “The Korean society is currently facing difficult political and economic times. It is amazing that even in these difficult circumstances, the Tongil Group employees are collecting money from their salaries to help those who are experiencing even more difficult circumstances. I hope that we can all continue to work hard as we overcome these difficult times and pay attention to those who have been marginalized in society.”



FFWPU Vice-President Hyun-Young Lee gave the congratulatory message. “Out of the many kinds of discrimination and polarization that exists in Korean society, the most painful kind is when someone’s future and dreams become polarized. Depending on the environment that people are born into, some may have the privilege to achieve their dreams, while to others, it is a luxury to have even a small dream. Tongil Group’s Salary Round-Off Project is the starting point of supporting the dreams of those who have been discriminated against and reducing social discrimination. Just as the small amount donated from each of these salaries has become a very large amount, this project will create a foundation for helping many people accomplish their dreams.”
