Tongyang Life Insurance announced on the 7th that it is devoting its efforts both financially and spiritually to supporting the ‘Angel Wing’, a sports team for the disabled. This team, established in December 2021 to create employment for the disabled and promote sports, is comprised of 10 badminton players. They are hired as Tongyang Life Insurance employees and their training time is recognized as working time. Tongyang Life Insurance provides various employee welfare benefits such as monthly salary, group insurance, and support for family events and condolences.
Based on this support, Hong Soon-jae, representative of the Angel Wing team, won first place in the doubles section of the Yangju Mayor’s Cup and Siheung Mayor’s Cup in June and August. Tak Jeong-suk, Hong’s mother, said, “Because I have a developmental disability, I had a hard time interacting with non-disabled people, but now I am a member of Angel Wing and feel psychologically stable as a player.”
Kim Han-sol, coach of the Angel Wing team, said, “Dongyang Life Insurance provides full support to the team every season, which gives us a lot of courage and hope,” and added, “We ask for the public’s interest not only in badminton but also in sports for the disabled.” .
Tongyang Life Insurance is also leading social contribution activities using tennis as part of its healthcare services and promotion of the welfare of Seoul citizens. Taking advantage of tennis, which has become a popular sport since last year, we signed a partnership with Nextfield, which won the right to operate the tennis court from the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and participated in the improvement of the outdated Jangchung tennis court facilities in Seoul.
An official from Dongyang Life Insurance said, “We will continue to carry out various social contribution programs such as supporting lifestyle sports and providing necessary benefits to the socially disadvantaged,” and added, “We will strive to contribute to the local community and become a trusted financial company.”
