JW FoundationJW Foundation is a public interest corporation supporting the healthy life of the people based on the spirit of respect for life and to create a healthy society living together.
Lee Jong-ho, honorary chairman of JW Holdings, devoted his private fortune (approx. 20 billion won) to set up a foundation in 2011, and has undertaken systematic and continuous social contribution activities.
The JW Group will continue to lead the way in creating a healthy society in which everyone is able to grow together by revealing the dark and alienated places in our society through the JW Foundation.
We are striving to make our society warmer by awarding a doctor who has accomplished great achievement in improving the health and quality of life by giving a medical care to the neighbors suffering from disease and poverty at home and abroad, regardless of the nationality.
