Support Medical Costs of Premature Babies

The Beautiful Foundation is a nonprofit foundation founded by the voluntary participation of citizens under the vision of “spreading the culture of sharing in daily life on the path toward a society for all” in 2000. Main programs are 1% Sharing Campaign for the spread of the culture of giving, fundraising, corporate social responsibility activities support, local grass-root organizations support, socially marginalized groups and future generation support, and research for the advancement of the culture of giving and projects aimed at improving institutions.

Ileundung-i, a newly coined Korean word, refers to premature babies with birth weight less than 2.5kg or born before 37 weeks of pregnancy. The Foundation supports the medical costs for Ileundung-i, so that young lives are not given up for economic reasons. The Foundation endeavours to create an environment where preemies born in Korea receive ample treatment and can grow in a safe and healthy condition.
