Hana Financial Group has been working to implement the “humanity financing” project, the first project in 2018. Chairman Kim Jung-tai has been stressing that humans are more important than technology and knowledge in the age of the 4th Industrial Revolution. He wants people to take their personal lives more seriously than business.
The group donated 1 billion won to the Korea Sports Association for the Disabled in a ceremony dedicated to supporting the national athletes participating in the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics for the development of sports.
“We are out to provide help to the development of the sports for the handicapped, which have been overlooked so far without reservations to change how the society looks at the handicapped people,” said Chairman Kim.
