Cambodian school gets help from Asiana staff
The company has been running a global education support activity since last year at Samraong Thum Elementary School to provide food as well as school and computer lab supplies.
This time, the airline’s employees have helped the school’s renovation work in restrooms and a gym, and have also run a series of cultural experience programs and events, including Korean food experiences, with students and faculty.
The company said it will continue to send its workers to the school to strengthen its bond with the school.
“I was able to see our students getting excited about having a computer lab and other school supplies,” Chhum Khuen, deputy principal of the school, was quoted as saying. “Asiana’s beautiful class project has brought many positive impacts here.”
Jeong Soo-il, deputy manager of Asiana Airlines, said, “I feel happy that students here are happily participating in our programs.”
Asiana Airlines said it will keep helping overseas communities. The company is currently running a similar project in China and Vietnam, and also operates social contribution activities in the Philippines and India.
