S-Oil names 20 ‘heroes’S-Oil has named 20 Korean “heroes” who made sacrifices to help others this year.
The company said it held the 2011 Hero Neighbors Award ceremony at its head office in Mapo, Seoul yesterday together with the Korea National Council on Social Welfare.
People who made noble sacrifices and showed great courage to help their fellow citizens were named as “hero neighbors” and awarded trophies and prize money. S-Oil selected these hero neighbors on the recommendation of the National Police Agency and the Ministry of Health and Welfare (MHW), as well as by the deliberation of a panel of experts.
S-Oil awarded a trophy and 15 million won ($13,000) to each to the families of two citizens who passed away while helping their neighbors. Trophies and prize money were also given to another 18 people who helped those in danger.
