Social contribution

JW Foundation

JW 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 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.

Sungcheon Award

It is an award to spread the spirit of respect for the life of the late Mr. Lee Sungcheon who contributed to the improvement of the national health through the development of the medical fluid in Korea and the supply of essential treatment, and to contribute to the welfare of the people.
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.

Voice of souls

Jong-ho Lee, the honorary president of JW Holdings, has been the sponsor of the Voice of souls which is a severely disabled choir of Holt Ilsan Welfare Town. Through their choir activities, the members not only reclaim their vitality by promoting their will to rehabilitate and develop their potential abilities, but also communicate with the world and break down the wall of invisible prejudices. We hope the voice of souls of severely disabled members will vividly and vigorously resonate and become a driving force to communicate with the world.
