The donation will be used for surgery and treatment for children and adolescents suffering from rare diseases. Moreover, it will help single-parent families, older adults living alone, and children leaving institutional care to have financial independence.

Since her debut, IU has shared her good deeds with her fandom “Uaena” on every special anniversary. For example, in March, she donated 100 million KRW (about $88,275) to support single-parent families and people with hearing loss with her fans to mark her 5th full album release.
