Company provides Braille calendars for visually impaired customers

Hanwha Group will continue its tradition of giving free braille calendars to the visually impaired this year. The company said yesterday that it plans to distribute 50,000 braille calendars. Hanwha has been distributing the calendars since 2000, after Hanwha Chairman Kim Seung-youn received an e-mail from a visually-impaired person asking for help. In the first year Hanwha printed 5,000 braille calendars.

The company increased that number to 10,000 in 2001 and 20,000 in 2002. Hanwha has distributed 30,000 calendars from 2003 until this year. The Korean conglomerate will be taking orders for the calendars at its Web site,, as well its social welfare Web site at between Nov. 9 and Nov. 27. The calendars will be delivered next month. “Hanwha’s social contribution emphasizes sincerity,” said Chang Il-hyung, vice president of public relations at Hanwha Group.
