To usher in the Family Month of May, the 5678 Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation (CEO Gichun Kim) announced a number of special events specially conceived to remind people of the meaning of family.
First, a free bracelet or necklace designed to prevent children from going missing is available this month. The gift is offered between 10:00am and 5:00pm from Monday to Saturday in the waiting lounge at the Achasan Station and Children’s Grand Park Station.
As the month of May, which includes Children’s Day, is a popular month for family excursions, this service should be of great help in preventing children from going missing and make it possible to locate missing children quickly.
This service is offered in cooperation with Sarangbat Corporation, a social welfare NGO.
Parents can choose either a bracelet or a necklace on which both the child’s name and the contact number of the parent/guardian will be inscribed.
Second, staff at 130 of the 5678 Seoul Metro stations are planning to present 15,000 carnations to elderly passengers who use the metro on May 7~8. This event is designed to show respect and appreciation for senior citizens in celebration of Parents’ Day.
In addition to these events, a special photography event for the elderly and families will be held every Friday in May in the Culture Room on the 1st basement floor of Jamsil Station.
The Portrait Photography Public Service Community has been taking portrait photographs of the elderly, but in celebration of the Family Month of May, the community is also photographing families free of charge.
Photos are taken between the hours of 12:00 and 13:00, and printed and distributed in A4 format. Those who wish to participate should book in advance at the Customer Service Office in any station on Subway Line No. 8 (from Amsa to Moran Station).
