Doosan Corporation supports the financial and emotional independence of children in childcare facilities who, under the Child Welfare Act, are required to leave the facilities and go out on their own when they reach the age of 18. In 2019, we donated KRW 168 million to the Korean Social Welfare Council. These funds were credited to the Didim Seed Child Development Accounts of 350 children at 15 childcare facilities nationwide. In addition to financial support, Doosan Corporation also supports mentoring programs to strengthen the self-leadership capabilities of 60 children at 8 childcare facilities nationwide. Our employees serve as mentors to help children in childcare facilities so that they can grow up to be healthy members of society through education and play.
