Haiti - Social : Sae-A Trading Co., Ltd., also a social actor in Haiti
Sae-A Trading Co. Ltd., a leading global apparel manufacturer, exporting over 1.3 billion US dollars worth of products, first company also installed in the Industrial Park of North (Caracol), has sponsored a team of medical experts from Chonnam National University Hospital for a 10-day mission to Haiti. The sending of this medical team is the latest of several community-oriented initiatives undertaken by Sae-A in Haiti.

The medical team is comprised of 20 professionals with eight doctors, four nurses, two pharmacists, two administrators, and four medical students. Among the eight doctors, four are professors, three are specialists, and one is the hospital director. Services are provided free of charge to communities in the areas of : infectious diseases, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, internal medicine and dermatology. On their first day, the team treated 325 locales, and expects to provide medical services to over three thousand Haitians by the end of the 10 day trip. Having spent the first part of their journey in Caracol, the team now makes its way to Terrier Rouge.

The sending of this medical mission is not Sae-A's first philanthropic effort in Haiti. Most recently, Sae-A donated 120 sewing machines, tables, workstations and sewing supplies to the INDEPTCO organization for their training institutes in Trou du Nord and Caracol.

In addition to the building of a production facility in the Caracol Industrial Park, Sae-A is building an elementary and middle school for 450 children residing near the Caracol area. Sae-A has already raised USD1 million for the construction of this school, with a commitment to provide operational funding moving forward. The school is being built for local community children living near the North Industrial Park and is in collaboration with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to assess the local Haitian education needs.

Recall that Sae-A has also been active in providing relief services. Immediately following the 2010 earthquake, Sae-A donated over 100,000 garments to the Haitian government as part of international relief efforts. Sae-A also provided 12,000 hygiene kits and a 4.5 ton cargo truck for medical supply transportation in the summer of 2011, with the country fighting a deadly cholera epidemic.
