Volunteers join to clean Korea’s coastline

A beach cleanup saw native English teachers and Korean volunteers join together to help preserve the Busan coastline on Saturday. Four members of the Association for Teachers of English in Korea joined more than twenty Korean members of the Rainbow Volunteers to clean the rocky Igidae beach.

ATEK plans to help with beach cleanups every second and fourth Saturday of the month for the entire summer, rain or shine.

The group also volunteers every third Saturday of the month at Boys Town orphanage in Busan, as well as helping out at the city’s Soyang and Sungaewon orphanages once a month each.

ATEK also organizes volunteer English teachers for Saegil Women’s Shelter and Asia Community School.

A new activity just added to the association’s charity schedule is feeding homeless people at Pusanjin subway station every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
