Amore Pacific Donates W1 Billion to Help Ferry Victims

Cosmetics maker Amore Pacific said on Wednesday it donated W1 billion (US$1=W1,024) to the Community Chest of Korea to help victims of the April 16 ferry disaster.

Chairman Suh Kyung-bae said, "We express our deep condolences to the victims and their bereaved families. We hope this will help make our country a safer place."

Immediately following the capsizing of the Sewol, Amore Pacific donated daily necessities for the families camping out at a temporary shelter on nearby Jindo island.
