[아시아경제 영남취재본부 최순경 기자] In Sancheong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do, if volunteers who worked hard for the community this year after last year hire caregivers, they will support part of the cost.

The military announced on the 16th that it will conduct the ‘2021 Volunteer Care Service Support Project’.

This project has been implemented since last year in order to actively encourage volunteer activities and reward the hard work of volunteers.

The target of support is military citizens who are registered on the ‘1365 Volunteer Portal’ and have a total of 500 hours or more of volunteer activities.

If the volunteers themselves or their spouse hire a caregiver, they support the cost of nursing care, and each volunteer can receive support for up to 400,000 won per year (up to 5 days of 80,000 won each).

Volunteers who wish to receive support for sick care expenses can apply through the Sancheong-gun Volunteer Center, the Sancheong-gun Office’s Resident Welfare Division, or the eup-myeon office.

A military official said, “We will continue to promote various rewards programs to vitalize volunteers while actively supporting volunteer activities.”

In the Sancheong-gun Volunteer Center, 9231 volunteers are registered on the ‘1365 Volunteer Portal’, and to prevent the spread of Corona 19, various activities such as mask support for the elderly, production of hygiene tools, and sharing volunteer activities are being promoted.
