On August 23, in partnership with the Global Child Welfare Agency and the ChildFund Korea Foundation, INFINITE’s Sunggyu visited children in an orphanage to celebrate their first birthdays.
The four children who celebrated their birthdays were brought to the orphanage either because their mothers were not fit to take care of them or because they were left in a Seoul church’s baby box.
At the event, Sunggyu gave each child a handwritten letter and thoughtful present that he had prepared. He also took family photos with each of the children, leaving behind a meaningful token to commemorate their first birthdays.
Sunggyu said, “I wanted to participate in this event after I heard about the regrettable fact that these children, who should be growing up under the love of their parents, would be spending their first birthdays alone. I hope that, in some small way, this [event] will help these children make happy memories [on their birthdays].”
