The "Tteokguk of Love" kits, prepared with donations from Hyosung and other donors, were to be delivered to families where children live only with grandparents, where there is a disabled member, where children live without parents or grandparents and where an elderly person lives alone. Hyosung has been supporting the “Sharing Tteokguk of Love” for 14 years since 2008.
On Feb. 4, Hyosung held a ceremony for "Sharing Daily Necessities of Love" at the Ahyeon-dong Community Center in Mapo-gu, where the group's headquarters is located. Hyosung delivered tuna and ham sets to 400 vulnerable households in Ahyeon-dong.
