NH Futures officials visited a strawberry farm near Seoul to offer helping hands to farmers there as a part of its corporate social responsibility activities.

The company designed the work because farmers suffer from a shortage of hands as many foreign workers left the country amid the novel COVID-19 coronavirus.

Our farmers face various difficulties. NH Futures officials will continue to help them down the road,” NH Futures CEO Lee Chang-ho said in a statement.
