Hyeun Young donates to cancer group


Hyeun Young

Just days after she took part in a promotional event co-hosted by the Seoul division of the Community Chest of Korea and the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation, Hyeun Young has made a donation herself.

The entertainer who became a mother just three months ago made the call on Thursday and donated 20 million won ($18,300) in her family’s name.

By doing so, she became one of the first benefactors of the project to build a care center for young cancer patients.

“After becoming the face of the movement, her husband suggested that they make a contribution,” Hyeun’s representative said.

“The couple hopes that through their donation, the public will become more aware of the organization.”

On Wednesday, Hyeun attended the press event held in Jung District, central Seoul, after being picked as the charity’s new honorary ambassador.

“I love children, so it’s so great to think that I can help out,” she said.
