The co-operative relationship between Korea and South Africa is growing

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in South Africa, in co-operation with Korean companies which have a presence in South Africa, has provided community service to a Safety Home which is located in Saulsville, Pretoria.

This CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programme organized by the Korean Embassy is supposed to act as a catalyst for community service involvement of Korean companies based in South Africa. The Embassy believes that it is extremely important for businesses to give back to the community as their successes come from people in society. Therefore, the Korean Embassy has steadily built a close relationship with the Leamogetswe Safety Home by donating various items to them in accordance with their needs since 2012.

This year, the Counsellor at the Korean Embassy, Mr Hee-soo Dan and local Korean businessmen visited Leamogetswe Safety Home to make the camping experience of children living there much better and to keep them warm during the chilly winter months by donating pairs of shoes and bedding to them.

The Korean volunteers participating in this event had a very meaningful time with the children in the Safety Home and witnessed the children’s delight with their new shoes and colourful new warm bedding.

The co-operative relationship between Korea and South Africa is growing rapidly. Trade volumes between the two countries totaled $4.4bn in 2013. Korea exports motor vehicles, electronics and chemical products to South Africa, which in turn, exports mineral resources (gold, platinum, iron ore) to Korea.
