Aug, 2020




Charles (Hee Cheul) Kim, CEO of Q CELLS, took part in the Flower Bucket Challenge, a relay campaign to support floriculture farmers organized and conducted by Green Umbrella Child Fund Korea. Kim donated flowers and purification plants to 30 local childcare centers and said, “I hope this activity will also benefit floriculture farmers who are suffering due to COVID-19.




CEO Kim purchased flowers and purification plants worth KRW 1 million from floriculture farmers through the Green Umbrella Child Fund Korea, a non-profit NGO, to donate to 30 local childcare centers vulnerable to COVID-19. 


Hanwha Group, since the outbreak of COVID-19, has performed group-wide activities to help overcome the crisis. Hanwha Solutions and Hanwha Corporation in February this year donated 150,000 masks to healthcare professionals and children, the elderly and low-income family members whose immune systems are relatively weak. In addition, Hanwha Life made available Life Park, a smart training institute that opened last year in the city of Yongin, Gyeonggi Provine, Korea, as a COVID-19 treatment center.


Charles (Hee Cheul) Kim expressed his thoughts about participating in the campaign, saying, “I hope that diverse activities in our society will create a cleaner and safer environment for children. Hopefully, there will be good momentum for floriculture farmers who are suffering from the situation caused by COVID-19.”


The Flower Bucket Challenge, a series of consumption-promotion campaigns to support floriculture farmers who are suffering due to cancellation and reduction of numerous events amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is conducted in a format in which participants nominate others to take part in the challenge. CEO Kim ,who took the baton from Byung-Yun Lim, CEO at Lotte Chemical Corporation (Basic Chemicals), nominated SK Gas CEO Byung-Suk Yoon as the next participant.
