BTS‘s J-Hope has made a ₩100 million KRW donation to support underprivileged youth in Africa to commemorate Children’s Day.
According to the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation, J-Hope donated ₩100 million KRW ($89,176.24 USD) to support children in Tanzania, Africa who are currently victims of child abuse and violence. He made this donation in commemoration of Children’s Day, which is celebrated on May 5 in Korea.
The donation will be used to support the One Stop Center, an organization established to end violence against Tanzanian children. The One Stop Center was established by the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation to carry out counseling, treatment, legal support, and collect evidence for matters regarding violence against children in Tanzania.
Both J-Hope and the chairman of the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation commented on the donation.
Many people around the world are currently suffering from Covid-19. Following my last donation that supported Korean children, I am now sponsoring children overseas in the hopes that the warmth shared will be delivered to children who are currently in blind spots in the public eye.
The continuous support from global superstar, BTS’s J-Hope, is raising interest in the lives of children who are suffering from economic difficulties. The foundation will continue to do its best for all children, both domestic and foreign, who need support.
