BTS rapper J-Hope has donated over $90,000 (100 million won) to the ChildFund Korea in observation of South Korea’s Children’s Day. The donation will help children in Tanzania exposed to violence through operations at the new One Stop Center in Tanzania, East Africa by ChildFund Korea.
“Many people around the world are suffering from COVID-19. I came to support children overseas following the support of domestic children in hopes that the warmth of sharing could reach them in the nooks of the world,” J-Hope said in a statement.
Lee Jae Hoon, chairman of ChildFund Korea added, “The continuous support of global superstar BTS’s member J-Hope is raising awareness of children suffering from economic difficulties. The foundation will also do its best to uphold the intentions of all donors including J-Hope by supporting children in need both domestically and internationally.”
With contributions of over 700 million won, J-Hope was named a member of the Green Noble Club in 2018. Last year the rapper also donated a similar amount to help children from low-income families struggling during COVID and donated $133,800 in February giving back on his birthday.
