Major Korean companies are successively expressing their assistance for the residents in Jeju Island and southern coastal area in the peninsula who have been heavily hit by Typhoon Nari.

The Samsung Group donated 2.2 million dollars for flood relief to the Jeju provincial office on September 21 and announced that the group has been managing relief activities with its own countermeasures to assist flood sufferers in the victimized area.

Employees of KT and KTF donated 220,000 dollars to Jeju Island. Shinsegae is supposed to donate 320,000 dollars to Community Chest of Korea.

In the meantime, the Korean government, through Cabinet Council, decided to urgently assist with about 27 million dollars in aid to the flooded area. The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries plans to provide free maintenance services to the 40 fishing boats sunk or destroyed due to the typhoon. The service will start from October 1 and end on the 9th of the same month.
