The Ewha Volunteer Center (EVC) will host an event called, “Making Kimchi with Love” at the grass field next to the Main Gate on Nov. 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. A total of 250 Ewha students, 30 faculty members and 20 volunteers from the Seodaemun-gu Office will gather their helping hands to make kimchi in the upcoming event. The event will open with a speech by Ewha President Kim Sun-uk and the mayor of Seodaemun-gu.“Making Kimchi with Love” is the main activity of 2012 Beautiful World with Ewha that has been arranged annually by the EVC to build a sense of community and share Ewha’s love with society since 2001. The EVC plans to distribute 10 kilograms of kimchi to the Seodaemun-gu Office and Ewha Community Welfare Center, respectively. The kimchi will then be delivered to 300 households, including the elderly people living by themselves, low income households, and the disabled.“We hope students get to acknowledge that there are many people around us who need help, through the event,” said Park Hyun-joo, one of the officials of the EVC who is in charge of the event. “As this event is held to practice Ewha’s spirit of love on campus and to encourage more students volunteering activities, we hope many students can find these meaningful messages as they participate in the event.”Students expect the event to be worthwhile, contributing to the society by helping people in need.“I think this event will be very meaningful in that Ewha family members can help people around us who need help,” Choi Seo-hyun (Nutritional Science & Food Management, 2) said. “Moreover, the process of making kimchi together with Ewha students itself sounds interesting.”Along with the “Making Kimchi with Love,” the EVC organized diverse events under the theme of “2012 Beautiful World with Ewha.” The EVC held a photo exhibition of the 2012 Summer Ewha Volunteers’ activity in the Student Union Building. In addition, students showed video clips and presented on the experience of national and international services that they gave during the chapels from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2.
