Lee Min Ho Makes Donation To Organizations Working To Protect Children From Abuse
Lee Min Ho recently made another contribution to his long history of giving to charitable causes.
On December 28, Lee Min Ho and MYM Entertainment donated 50 million won (about $46,000) through the donation platform PROMIZ to Holt Children’s Services Inc, Good Neighbors International, and Save the Children, three organizations specializing in the protection of vulnerable children.
Lee Min Ho has long been interested in child welfare and has steadily made donations and participated in awareness campaigns to promote this cause. His most recent donation was motivated by the fact that the rate of child abuse at the hands of family members has increased as the COVID-19 pandemic has confined more people at home.
Lee Min Ho’s donation will be used to support programs that aim to improve family relationships and provide psychological counseling to victims of child abuse in order to help victims with the emotional aftereffects and prevent further abuse.
This is not the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic that Lee Min Ho has given back to charitable causes. At the beginning of 2020, he donated 300 million won (about $276,000) toward efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including providing personal protection equipment to health care workers and children with vulnerable immune systems.
PROMIZ stated, “He decided to make the donation in order to protect children who are suffering from abuse by family members at a time when children are spending more time at home than before due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He hopes that this donation will raise awareness for the victims of child abuse who are suffering in the dark and also provide practical assistance to vulnerable children.”
In 2020, Lee Min Ho and MYM Entertainment received official recognition as a business that has made significant social contributions to local communities due to their consistent donations and awareness campaigns through PROMIZ. Under the joint supervision of the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Korea National Council on Social Welfare, this recognition discovers and encourages companies that have consistently engaged in social contribution activities in cooperation with nonprofit organizations in local communities.
Meanwhile, Lee Min Ho is currently preparing for the upcoming Apple TV+ drama “Pachinko,” based on a book of the same name.
