HSBC Korea donates to low-income studentsHSBC Korea on Tuesday announced that it has donated a total of 15 million won ($12,000) to the Korean branch of Plan International, a British non-governmental organization.
The donation will be used to supply school uniforms and other supplies to students in low-income families.
The bank said it has donated school supplies to such students since 2011.
“Thanks to the participation of HSBC employees, our donation, which is now in its ninth year, has been growing every year,” HSBC Korea President Jung Eun-young said during a ceremony held at the bank’s headquarters on Monday.
“I hope this can provide even the slightest help to students in lower-income families who are experiencing hardships due to Covid-19.”
