Lee Byung Hun Makes Donation To Help Children From Low-Income Families Through Pandemic
Lee Byung Hun recently made a meaningful donation to help children from lower-income families.
On December 30, the actor’s agency BH Entertainment shared that Lee Byung Hun had donated 100 million won (approximately $91,800) to Child Fund Korea to aid children from low-income families enduring hardships due to COVID-19.
After hearing about the difficulties some children were facing because of the pandemic including education inequalities and other learning gaps and hurdles, and as a father himself, Lee Byung Hun wanted to express his care for the kids.
Lee Byung Hun’s donation will be used toward establishing a clean and safe living space for children from low-income families, improving their access to education, supporting them in developing their talents, and strengthening their social and economic independence.
The actor has previously made donations to this organization, most notably during the Gangwon Province wildfires last year. More recently, Lee Byung Hun donated to the Community Chest of Korea earlier this year to aid in funding COVID-19 preventative measures.
Lee Byung Hun’s next project is thriller film “Concrete Utopia” (working title) which follows survivors in their ruined city after a massive earthquake.
