For a better future

According to KT&G, a donation of 180 million won ($133,800) was made to the Justice Ministry to build a Snoezelen controlled multisensory environment room at the National Forensic Hospital in Gongju, South Chungcheong. The room will be used to psychologically help both patients being treated for mental illness, drug addiction and victims of violence, and the medical staff. The donation will also go toward improving the housing conditions of former inmates living in low-income housing including setting up study rooms for children. KT&G since 1998 has been making donations not only for improving the housing conditions of former inmates but also in helping troubled youth get counseling and jobs. The company's accumulated donations amount to over 10.8 billion won. “Through these donations, we hope to create better living environments for those that are socially vulnerable and help them become an outstanding member of society,” said the KT&G Vice President Lee.
