▲ A placard of the UOS for condolence
From June 27 to June 28 and again from June 30 to July 1, 66 UOS students visited Jindo to help staffs working at the Sewol Ferry disaster site. About 30 students did volunteer work each time, and some of those students joined on both dates.

Departing at 8 a.m. from Seoul City Hall Square, students arrived at Jindo gymnasium at 1 p.m. After receiving some training, ‒ there were simple rules to follow when volunteering in the incident site such as “do not take photographs” ‒ students began their work.

Two major jobs for student volunteers were cleaning, arranging the area around the gymnasium and preparing meals for volunteers and grieving families. Students also worked at the situation room. Later that day, some of the students headed to Pangmok individually to do more volunteer work there.

Despite the incoming helping hands, the site was constantly short of volunteers and various supplies. The number of visiting volunteer workers was decreasing and the number of relief supplies was facing shortage. It had already been several days when the volunteer center had to call people up and ask them to visit the site, since workers lacked in number. The endeavor to rebuild the site continued for four months, yet recovery is far ahead.

This activity of UOS was in collaboration with the Seoul Volunteer Center, and there will be further official calls for volunteer until the disaster ends. Those who want to join the volunteers can apply through the Seoul Volunteer Center, Ansan Volunteer Center, and Jeonnam Volunteer Center.
