Shin Min Ah has been offering helping hands to burned patients, and so far, a total of 114 burned patients have received her support.
Since 2015, Shin Min Ah has been supporting burned patients’ treatments through the Hallym Burn Foundation, a social welfare corporation. For the past 6 years, she donated 100 million KRW (about 91,378 USD) every year. A total of 114 patients were assisted in surgery and treatment with her donations.
Burned patients need several surgeries over the years. It also takes a long time for skin tissue to recover. But compared to the need that each of them require, support and interest are significantly low. After hearing the stories of burned patients, Shin stepped up to help them out in her own way.
Not only did she personally comfort patients and their families, but she has also provided medical expenses for children from overseas, such as Mongolia and Cambodia, to receive proper treatments in Korea.
Yoon Hyun Sook, the chairman of the Hallym Burn Foundation, expressed her gratitude, “The burned patients gain great courage and hope through Shin Min Ah, a donor who has been practicing support for a long time. We deeply thank her for being a good model as a public figure. I hope that her good influence will spread during these difficult times.”
