2017

The goal of Amorepacific Group’s ‘20 by 20’ Commitment to Every Woman Every Child (2017-2020) is to beautify the lives of 200,000 women by the year 2020 by contributing to their health, well-being, and economic empowerment. Their vision is one where every woman can live her best life, as she desires, and contribute to A MORE Beautiful World.

Amorepacific will contribute to reducing the mortality rate of female cancer and improving the lives of female cancer patients through supporting preventative education, screening of women’s cancer (breast, gynecological cancer), cancer surgery for low-income women and post-surgery care and self-esteem restoration for female cancer patients. In order to do so, they plan to annually support 49,000 women with a minimum budget of KRW 3.5 billion(USD 3.08 million). This program is operated mainly in Korea and China, with plans to expand to Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand.

Furthermore, Amorepacific will also contribute to women’s independence and cultivate gender equality by enhancing women’s economic empowerment. In order to do so, their goal is to annually support 1,000 women with a minimum budget of KRW 3.5 billion(USD 3.08 million) for the foundation of women employment, economic independence, and confidence restoration. Beginning from Korea, this program will strengthen its capability and gradually expand to regions of the globe where Amorepacific offices and production sites are located.

Amorepacific is committing a total of KRW 7 billion (USD 6.16 million) annually.

Commitment Progress

The goal of Amorepacific’s ‘20 by 20’ Commitment to Every Woman Every Child (2017-2020) is to beautify the lives of 200,000 women by the year 2020 through contribution to women’s health, well-being and economic empowerment. Our vision is to help every woman live her best life, as she desires, and contribute to A MORE Beautiful World.
We have been contributing to reducing the mortality rate of female cancer and improving the lives of female cancer patients by supporting preventative education, screening of women’s cancer, cancer surgery for low-income women and post-surgery care and self-esteem restoration for female cancer patients. Through these support programs, we plan to annually support 49,000 women with a minimum budget of KRW 3.5 billion (Approx. USD 3.08 million).
Furthermore, Amorepacific has contributed to women’s independence and gender equality by enhancing women’s economic empowerment. Through various support activities for women employment, economic independence and confidence restoration, we aim to annually support 1,000 women with a minimum budget of KRW 3.5 billion (Approx. USD 3.08 million).
In 2017, KRW 8.06 billion (Approx. USD 747 million) was earmarked and a total of 145,404 women were supported, which exceeds our annual target goal (KRW 7 billion). We have strengthened women’s economic capacity and supported their health and well-being through a variety of projects that have been conducted in partnership with our partner organizations around the world.
In particular, Amorepacific has been holding ‘MORI Run’ – a Running festival for women – to raise public awareness about top two cancers affecting women in urban areas of China; breast and cervical cancer. In addition, Amorepacific has conducted two cancer screening and health education programs for women living in low-income areas in collaboration with Chinese government. In order to select appropriate regions for cancer screening programs, Amorepacific China carried out site inspections and field research in collaboration with the China Women’s Development Foundation every year for a period of three weeks. Through this strategic partnership, we seek to strengthen our expertise and impact locally.
This year, we also focused on expanding our commitment efforts to broader regions as we planned. The “makeup your Life” campaign was held in Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Singapore, and each of Amorepacific’s local branches actively operated programs to help female cancer patients to quickly return to their daily lives. We have run programs 46 times and supported 1,680 patients globally.
