In its mission to make the world a better place to live for everyone, LG Electronics will forever champion the importance of social contribution and doing more as a company to help those that can’t help themselves.

LG East Africa has been actively carrying out diverse social initiatives to help improve education, environment and health standards in the region over the last few years and has already made a lasting impact on thousands of locals. This year, LG East Africa partnered again with Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Kenya for its second CSR project to support more than 25,000 Kenyans in Laikipia County.
LG Electronics East Africa Managing Director Sa Nyoung Kim lays a stone to commence construction of ablution blocks at Mbombo Primary School,
with HFH Senior Program Manager Nixon Otieno and Mbombo Primary School Headteacher Mwangi Thumbi looking on.
Early this January, LG in partnership with HFH Kenya launched several social initiatives valued at around USD 90,000 (KES 10.3 million) to benefit more than 3,000 primary and secondary school students and the 22,000 residents receiving supplies from the Olmoran and Maundu Meri Dispensaries every year. At least two dispensaries and seven schools within Mbombo and Rumuruti will see positive changes from these initiatives.
Many children and teachers at these schools have limited access to clean, safe water and must make regular trips to far-away dams. To make matters worse, school infrastructure is severely lacking with classrooms, which are mostly made from mud and old iron roof sheets, lacking doors, windows and proper sanitation.

To make life better for the children, LG aims to directly resolve the challenges facing these vibrant communities. The company is building new classrooms and toilet facilities and furnishing them with proper school desks, tables and equipment, with construction expected to be completed by June. Over 20 LG products including refrigerators, washers, water purifiers, air conditioners, TVs and microwaves have been donated so far.
This initiative is a continuation of LG Electronics’ continued partnership with HFH, first partnering with the Korean branch in 2020 to launch the , inviting fans to create short videos on how much they love their home. In return, LG made generous donations and gifted appliances to newly built homes in Kenya, Vietnam and India.
Also, as part of its , LG let fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Fortnite virtually experience healthy home solutions and make donations to HFH Korea – courtesy of LG – by simply posting screenshots on their socials.
Laikipia becomes the second Kenyan county to benefit from LG’s work with HFH, following the company’s which improved learning facilities at several schools including the Machakos School for the Deaf.
Stay tuned to hear what else LG has planned to help support local communities around the world in need of a helping hand!

I currently own a OLED65C1PUB 2021 Model purchased 1 month ago and it has started having some issues. I don't have cable or satellite TV. I stream everything and recently while using apps on the TV they will just close and the TV switches to my HDMI 1 input that has a chromecast plugged into it. Sometimes it will go straight to the Screensaver instead. This happens quite often and is very annoying. Length of time in thr apps doesn't seem to matter, sometimes it will happen after 20 minutes of watching and sometimes after 30 seconds. Completely random. Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them. And if so any luck finding out what is causing it?

Hi everyone, hope someone on here can help me out. I have a new 2022 model LG 55NANO75TPA that’s been updated to the latest version of WebOS.
For the life of me I still can’t figure out how to view the apps that are open and still running in the background. On my previous LG smart TV it was ‘hold the home button’ and the list of open apps would show, being able to press the 'X' on each one and close it. But all that does now is switch between Free To Air TV and other random apps. If anyone knows how to bring it up, or even if it still exists on new LG tvs, I’d really appreciate the help. Thanks very much. P.Z

I have an OLED65C9PLA. Was fine when I went on holiday came home and Netflix and Prime wasnt working.
My current situation is I can use the TV web browser and search for and open web pages no problem at all, but if I press the Netflix or Prime button I get the LG content loading screen (the redish picture with a tv on it) then after a few seconds a black screen with try again. Error code -7 or sometimes a -34? cant remember. Network is fine both Wifi and cable. I use cable for the TV but have removed and tried with Wifi. Same results. If I select the LG content App it does the same loading screen then error. Everything else seems fine, just when ever the content apps are needed crash.
I have looked into many things, removing the plug from the wall (left for over 30min), Some hard reset thing where you press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, Factory reset. From what I can see I have the latest LG software 5.20.15. As I said all was good when I left, nothing changed then didnt work. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
