TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho Talks about Volunteering in Africa
TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho shared on his experience volunteering in Africa to help out deprived children.
On November 13, there was a press conference for KBS 1TV’s 2013 Hope Road (The Voice of Children) at the international conference room in Yeoido, Seoul. It was attended by Yunho, Lee Bo Young and Kim Hyun Joo.
During the conference, Yunho talked about meeting children in Ghana, where he went to help out the children in need by broadcasting their situation.
He said, “I wanted to help children make good memories, so I decided to do a sporting event. When I asked what they wanted to play, most said soccer. Since I liked soccer too, we played together.”
He continued by saying, “I brought a Polaroid camera with me to take pictures, along with some school supplies, since I heard they have shortage of those things. I gave out the Polaroid pictures to the children. Now that I’ve visited once, I have a better idea of what they need the most. I’m also thankful to my fans who want to help out as well.”
Hope Road (The Voice of Children) is a special program where celebrities volunteer to visit underdeveloped countries to raise awareness about the people in need and help solve major problems by getting donations. The show first aired in 2010.
Five celebrities participated in 2013 Hope Road (The Voice of Children) and each will appear in one episode at a time. The first of its episodes, featuring Lee Bo Young, will air on November 16.
