Hyeri donated 50 million won to UNICEF’s “We=She Campaign” on the 9th. Her funds will be used to provide hygiene products for young girls.
Hyeri said, “I learned that there are still many young girls in the world who face difficulties during their periods due to the lack of hygiene goods or prejudice that see periods being impure. It was heartbreaking to hear that many girls won’t go to school because they do not have separate bathrooms for men and women. I hope this gives the support for the girls to grow up happily in a safe and clean environment.”
Lee Ki Chul, secretary-general of UNICEF’s Korean Committee, shared, “Hyeri delivered a warm gift on her birthday. Although she is the youngest member of the Honors Club, Hyeri’s caring heart is deeper and wider than anyone else. She has set a great example for all of us in the organization. Her donation will be used to provide a safe and clean environment for all the girls in developing countries.”
Hyeri became the youngest member of UNICEF’s “Honors Club” for donating 100 million won (approximately $89,663) in 2019 toward the campaign, “Schools for Asia.”
