    Samsung Group will donate W50 billion to help people in need as part of its year-end campaign (US$1=W1,122).

    "Our seven affiliates will join forces to donate W50 billion to the Community Chest of Korea," a spokesman at Samsung said on Sunday.

    The money will be used to support underprivileged youth, disabled people and other low-income families. Samsung has so far donated a total of W570 billion since 1999.
