The Europe-Korea Foundation (EKF) was established in May 2001 as the charity arm of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Korea (EUCCK). Currently, Mr. Frans Hampsink serves as EUCCK president.It was created with the aim to demonstrate that the European Union (EU) nations and businesses have keen interest in and affection for Korea not only in the field of economic cooperation but also in the areas of social welfare and cultural exchange.EKF is a public foundation focusing in its work on improving relations between Europe and the Korean Peninsula as well as enhancing mutual cooperation. EKF will continue to strengthen ties between the EU and Korea through a variety of programmes, such as cultural exchanges, sports events, training seminars and projects promoting inter-Korean understanding and peace.The Beautiful Store is a place where people come together and practice sharing by donating items, such as clothes, bags, books, music, videos, kitchen appliances, children and baby goods, furniture, sports goods, etc., which they no longer use but which others could still be interested in. They collect and repair used items and sell them at bargain prices. Through this process, they are creating a recycling culture in Korea.For more information, please contact Ms. Nicole Risse, EKF director at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 02-725-0381.
