Indian women living in Korea have donated 5 million won to the Korean Red Cross. Annapurna Indian Women’s Club raised the money at a Diwali Gala Dinner, which it has held for the past five years.
The AIWC hosted 350 people for this year’s dinner at Millennium Seoul Hilton on Oct. 14.
The Korean Red Cross will use the funds to support children raised by their grandparents as well as for disaster relief, refugees and other Red Cross humanitarian relief activities.
Kusum Tayal, chairwoman of AIWC and wife of the Indian ambassador to Korea, also received an appreciation plaque from the Korean Red Cross for her volunteer service to the charity since 2008.
