KEPCO KPS’ “One Heart Volunteer Group” has actively carried out charity work overseas as well.

The “One Heart Volunteer Group” a volunteer group of KEPCO KPS’ Al Manakher Plant in Jordan, which currently conducts plant operation and maintenance business in Jordan, visited the Taekwondo school at the Zaatari refugee camp run by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for five days from Feb. 1 to 5, and repaired and restored the electrical systems and building.

The Taekwondo school at the Zaatari refugee camp, which is home to more than 83,000 Syrian refugees, has been established and operated by a Korean private organization to help Syrian child refugees cope with the trauma of the civil war and grow up healthy through the activities of the community.

The company’s volunteer group examined the safety of the electrical systems at the container building and installed new electric equipment in where it is needed. In addition, it restored and fixed the roof of the building so children can learn in the clean and safe environment.

Lee Gi-dae, head of KEPCO KPS’ Al Manakher Plant project, said, “Through the latest volunteer work actively participated in by local staff, we were able to not only share our corporate social responsibility that goes beyond national boundaries but also to take part in international efforts to help Syrian refugees.”
