Child Fund Korea’s representatives said that J-Hope made a donation of KRW 150 million ($135,657) to the organization to be utilized for child care, education, and social support service fees for vision and hearing differently abled children whose families are in struggling economic situations.


J-Hope being a member of the Green Noble Club, an elite group of individuals who have donated over KRW 100 million ($90,438), J-Hope felt like he had to help the members of the future of Korea who have some disabilities.


I heard that the number of families in vulnerable situations is increasing significantly due to the prolonged COVID-19 crisis, and support for disabled children is urgently needed. I hope this donation will further expand social interest in supporting children with disabilities.

– J-Hope 


J-Hope became the 146th member of the Green Hope Club back in 2018. Throughout his career, he made multiple generous donations, such as KRW 150 million to support cultivation of talent in 2018, KRW 100 million in scholarships in 2019, and KRW 100 million to support families who were struggling during the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.


Child Fund Korea’s chairman Lee Je Hoon also expressed gratitude to J-Hope for his generous donation.

Through the regular donations made by global star BTS’s J-Hope, interest in children who are suffering from economic difficulties is increasing, and his good influence is leading to increased inquiries in donating by both domestic and foreign ARMY.

 

Child Fund Korea will also do our best to support children from low-income families in accordance with the wishes of all our donors, including J-Hope.
