Deutsche Bank Korea makes Kimchi for underprivileged children

November 2013 │ Korea

Deutsche Bank Korea staff participated in ‘Kimjang’, a Corporate Responsibility event organised by the Korea Financial Investment Association (KOFIA) on November 19, 2013. The industry group came together to make Kimchi, a traditional and popular fermented Korean dish made of cabbage and seasoned vegetables.

‘Kimjang’ is a traditional late fall activity where families make enough Kimchi to survive the coldest months of the long winter.



More than 15,000 kg of Kimchi made by the volunteers were distributed to Childfund Korea, an institution that supports the underprivileged children.



 “The Kimchi we made together was one of the tastiest I’ve tried. Kimchi forms a unique part of Korea’s culture and Koreans eat it as a side dish with almost every meal. As a foreigner, learning to make Kimchi helped me understand the Korean culture better.” commented Chris Linde, Chief Operating Officer of Deutsche Bank Group Korea, as he worked with his colleagues to turn the cabbages and filling into delicious Kimchi.
