The labour union of one of South Korea’s largest electronics companies, LG Electronics Inc., and icddr,b have signed a memorandum of understanding that will provide $95,000 to enhance patient care.
At a special event at icddr,b today the vice chairman of LG Electronics Inc. Labour Union Headquarters Mr Sang-Geol Lee signed a memorandum of understanding with icddr,b’s executive director Professor John D. Clemens committing a donation of US$95,000 to icddr,b’s Dhaka Hospital.
The hospital—known locally as ‘The Cholera Hospital’—provides free-of-charge care to around 120,000 patients a year suffering from diarrhoeal diseases. The majority of patients are children under five years of age.
The donation from LG Electronics Inc. will enable icddr,b to improve its hospital facilities and provide treatment to approximately 1,200 patients over the next four months. The donation handover ceremony marked the launch of a partnership between the South Korean corporate giant and the internationally-renowned research institute aimed at improving the health of the people of Bangladesh.
During the ceremony the Labour Union Headquarters Vice Chairman Mr Sang-Geol Lee told the audience, “LGE employees carefully save their money through “Bank of Love” and using that money all over the world where necessary. In 2014 we decided to utilise and use those funds in Bangladesh.”
Chief guest at the ceremony, H.E. Mr. Lee Yun Young, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea also commended the partnership, sayings “Korea is supporting Bangladesh in rural and agricultural development, ICT and reducing climate change impacts.” Appreciating Bangladesh’s growth and performance in socio-economic development and achieving MDGs during the programme, H.E. Mr Lee hoped that, Bangladesh could follow the Korean model of development, as Korea once an aid recipient developing country, achieved its remarkable development through proper utilisation of its human capital, foreign assistance and others.
“We are very excited at this new partnership,” icddr,b executive director Professor John D. Clemens added. “It is a fine example of how corporate social responsibility can support the type of public health services that we provide at the Dhaka Hospital. We look forward to a long-term relationship with LG, and through them with the people of South Korea.”  
The representatives of LG’s Labour Union completed their visit to icddr,b by touring the Dhaka Hospital where they saw first-hand the clinical care and services provided to patients.
