Shinhwa′s Kim Dong Wan Donates 50 Million Won for Children of Low Income Families
Hoping to provide a warm winter to children in low-income families, Shinhwa′s Kim Dong Wan participated in the act of giving.
On January 7, ChildFund Korea, a global children′s welfare agency, shared that Shinhwa member and actor Kim Dong Wan donated 50 million won to help underpriviledged children who must fight against poverty during the cold winter season.
"Although sleeping in a warm room and washing up with warm water are natural acts, for children who are in difficult situations, I think winter is a season that I′m very apologetic for as an adult," stated Kim Dong Wan. "I participated in this donation with hopes of being even just a little help for these children."
He shared that he also had a difficult childhood but never had his hopes dashed due to his circumstances, adding, "Instead, because I had that that desperation during those times, I was able to rise to become a Shinhwa member and Kim Dong Wan now."
"I hope that the many children, who are living difficult lives in the cold weather, will never lose their dreams and hopes despite being in harsh environments."
Kim Dong Wan′s donation will be given to children of low-income famililes and various supporting businesses in Korea through ChildFund Korea.
"A new year has started, but there are still children who are struggling in the cold and in hunger, so it′s not an easy thing to carry in hope for the new year," stated ChildFund Korea CEO Lee Je Hoon. "We hope that it will be a year where many people, including Kim Dong Wan who participated in this meaningful act of giving, will step forward to protect the dreams of children."
Meanwhile, Kim Dong Wan will be making a comeback with Shinhwa in February with its 12th album.
