The Korean Embassy served free meals to more than 4,000 people in India.
To join in India’s nationwide effort in tackling COVID-19, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea provided mid-day meals for more than 4,000 people in New Delhi on April 24, 2020.
In partnership with Annamrita Foundation, India’s non-profit organization, the Ambassador Shin Bong-Kil and other staff members of the Embassy served hot meals and handed out fresh bread to around 1,000 people in the queue at four hunger shelters, following strict social distancing rules – MCD Primary Schools in South Extension, Sadiq Nagar, Lajpat Nagar and Amar Colony.
This was the part of the Korean government’s #StayStrongCampaign implemented in India with the slogan “Korea-India stay strong together.” The budget of today’s activity – amounting to 221,000 rupees – was voluntarily raised by the Korean Embassy staff to help the less privileged people of Delhi in these hard times.
