Post-COVID-19: CCK’s Direction
As the pandemic shows signs of prolonging, the economy has downturned and unemployment is rising. This means that families in crisis, such as low-income households and small business owners, need even more help. Accordingly, CCK is getting ready for the next campaigns that massive citizens can join and support to continue to help underprivileged communities after the COVID-19 emergency response.
In addition, as the central and local governments gave out the Emergency Disaster Relief Fund to the public (central government in May) and the Gyeonggi Provincial Government launched its campaign involving the disaster basic income, it was pointed out that a comprehensive campaign would be more effective, instead of local governments across the nation launching their own campaigns. That is how CCK came to launch its #OvercomeTogether “Let’s Rise, Republic of Korea” Campaign (Apr. 27-Jun. 30).
