Girl’s Day’s Hyeri Makes Meaningful Donation On Her Birthday
Girl’s Day’s Hyeri celebrated her birthday by making a thoughtful donation!
On her birthday June 9, Hyeri donated 50 million won (approximately $44,789) to UNICEF’s “We=She Campaign” to provide hygiene products for young girls.
Hyeri shared, “I learned that there are still a lot of young girls across the globe who face difficulties during their periods because they don’t have hygiene products or face discrimination and pain because of customs that see periods as being impure. My heart hurt to hear that there are many female students who don’t go to school because there are no separate bathrooms for boys and girls at school. I hope this gives at least a little support so that all young girls can mature happily in safe and clean environments.”
Secretary general Lee Ki Chul of UNICEF’s Korean Committee stated, “Benefactor Hyeri has delivered a warm gift for her birthday. Although she’s the youngest member of the Honors Club, Hyeri’s generous heart, which cares for her surroundings and acts thoughtfully, is deeper and broader than anyone else. She sets a lot of examples for me and our employees.” He added, “The funds will be used valuably to create a safe and clean world for young girls in developing countries.”
In 2019, Hyeri officially became the youngest member of UNICEF’s Honors Club after donating 100 million won (approximately $89,663) towards UNICEF’s global campaign “Schools for Asia.” The UNICEF Honors Club is an organization of donors who donated more than 100 million won to UNICEF Korea.
Currently, Hyeri is starring in tvN’s “My Roommate Is a Gumiho,” which airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 p.m. KST.
