Pres. Park Praises Exemplary Volunteers over Lunch

President Park Geun-hye took an opportunity to praise 34 leading volunteers for their spirit of service and sharing.

At an invitational luncheon held at the presidential office on Friday, the president said that there are a growing number of people who are quietly giving their helping hand to those in need, and that there is still hope in our society, thanks to their efforts. 

The president also noted that the methods of sharing are evolving beyond conventional forms. She said that when the donation pension plan and donation banks are introduced next year, the spirit of sharing will further spread throughout the society.

The luncheon participants included diver Yoo Gye-yeol who served as a volunteer rescue worker in disaster-stricken areas, and Belgian-born doctor Bae Hyun-jeong who has been providing medical service to more than 400-thousand low-income citizens in South Korea for over 40 years.

Also on hand were celebrities known for their commitment to volunteerism.
