Through the charity project with We Start, PM-International Korea wants to support the health and character education of children exposed to financially vulnerable environments. Once again, I'm glad that we conduct this charity project with the organization for the bright future of Korea."

For almost 20 years, the PM-International Group has been actively involved in charity projects around the world. We are the largest corporate sponsors of the relief, development and advocacy organization World Vision with more than 3,000 sponsored children. Now it is time to contribute to the local community here in Korea. We're very thankful that we're having this opportunity."

Furthermore, he particularly expressed appreciation: "Our main goal is that we want to help empowering children. So, we're very happy and thankful to collaborate with a strong organization as We Start and to have the opportunity to do this here in Korea. And we're very thankful for our distribution partners and customers who have been giving us the chance to share our success with children in need and their families here in Korea."
