Serving meals to the elderly in Seoul

August 2017 │ Korea

Deutsche Bank employees in Finance have been working with Happy World Welfare Centre in the eastern suburbs of Seoul, Korea for the last seven years, supporting elderly in need.

In addition to a donation to support the centre’s activities, recently a group of volunteers spent the day at the centre cooking and serving lunch for more than 100 elderly.



The volunteers were heartened to see the elderly enjoy their meals, and at the same time bonded as a team. Kristina Rhee, Head of Finance in Korea, said, “While many people think volunteering is ‘giving, we are ‘receiving’ as well.’ I am pleased to share this experience with everyone.”



One of volunteers also commented “The happiest moment is when I see the elderly enjoy their meals and ask for their favourite side dishes again with a smile. The warmth of this event keeps me revisiting the site annually.”
