We have held our annual ‘Doosan Day of Community Service,’ when our employees around the world promote sharing activities for local communities. In April 2019, 1,973 employees from eight countries conducted various volunteer activities, including furniture making, facility maintenance, and environmental cleanup, for communities and neighbors near local worksites.
Woori Doori, Sports for Youth with Disabilities
‘Woori Doori’ started in 2016 is a sports program for helping youths with development disabilities to build physical strength and improve social skills through T-Ball, which is a new sport similar to baseball. For youths with disabilities in Seoul, Incheon, Iksan, and Chang-won areas where Doosan subsidiaries are located, a group of volunteers composed of Doosan employees and college students participated in the program and offered T-Ball coaching. In 2019, 220 youths with disabilities took part in 146 T-ball training sessions, and 275 employees(586 hours) participated in the training. In addition, the program received the Mayor’s Award for Social Contribution in Seoul.
Sharing Tea with Love
Sharing Tea with Love is a CSR program that has been in existence since 1991, delivering warmth to soldiers serving on the front line. We delivered 8,000 boxes of instant coffee and monetary donations in 2019, and the total number of tea cups delivered to the 360 military camps around the country so far has reached 39.2 million.
Mugunghwa Planting Project
Doosan has been operating the Mugunghwa Planting Project to promote the beauty and excellence of ‘mugunghwa,’ the national flower of Korea. We have created mugunghwa parks at Hongcheon Namgung Eok Memorial Hall, Gungjeong-dong Mugunghwa Garden, and the Seoul Botanical Garden since 2016. In 2019, our employees visited Gungjeong-dong Mugunghwa Garden to learn about the Mugunghwa Planting Project, the species and history of mugunghwa, and conducted volunteer activities such as pruning and cleaning up fallen and withered flowers for the maintenance of mugunghwa”
