At times of great loss, people come together.
Korea is a nation in despair, and the pain felt among victims' families is unimaginable.
To help them in this most difficult time, hundreds of firms and thousands of volunteers have come down to the Jindo area to do what they can.


"We started providing meals on April 16th. We have around 100 volunteers and feed around 700 people a day."


"We came here on the day of the incident, We make sure all the supplies, like instant noodles, bread and other things don't run out of stock. We are serving approximately two to three-thousand people per day."

The services are free of charge.


"We not only provide medical service to victim's families, but also to volunteers, the press and civilian divers, among others."


"Hundreds of volunteers are signing up daily all around the country. Nearly 8-thousand people have volunteered since the tragic incident on April 16th, to show their support and help the victims' families in their time of need.
