SEOUL, Jul. 19 (Korea Bizwire) — The Union Corporate Committee (UCC), a volunteer organization with over eight years of volunteering experience overseas since 2012, held a special event for female immigrants in South Korea to meet with their family members online.
The UCC is comprised of both management and labor unions of the telecommunications giant KT Corp. and 19 other South Korean firms.
The committee invited 170 family members to a hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam on Monday to hold a series of video chats with 25 female Vietnamese immigrants living in South Korea, over a period of three days.
The family members, as part of a two-day program, went on a tour of downtown Hanoi, received free medical check-ups, experienced Korean traditions, and tried out virtual reality (VR) simulations.
The most frequently asked question by family members to their loved ones in South Korea was “Is your husband taking good care of you?”, reflecting their concern over the recent case of domestic violence in which a South Korean male assaulted his Vietnamese wife in Yeongam County, South Jeolla Province.
On Thursday, the UCC held another reunion event for nine female Vietnamese immigrants in South Korea to meet with their 36 family members at a local village in Haiphong, Vietnam.
