A young entrepreneur is under the media spotlight for his charitable business venture!


Lee Ji Woong, a man who founded 'D'LUV' with the aim of building schools and health care facilities in underdeveloped countries like Cambodia, wrote on his Facebook, "I heard stories about underprivileged female students last winter. I saw on the news that [the students] use toilet paper or the soles of their shoes as a substitute for sanitary pads, and I decided to make these pads myself." 


Lee further revealed that he has created several prototypes and is in the process of improving the quality of his product and making them as affordable as possible. He even submitted his product for review to the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA).

Lee determined on his Facebook post, "There were people that whispered that I'm some sort of pervert and I even met a middle-aged man who said he was embarrassed for me but I will keep at this work. Please contact me if you can lend assistance in any way regarding the areas of trade, design, and the production process.

    Sflr, but imo it seemed to me as if you just had to find a comment from someone going against the general support gushing from the rest of the comments to criticise. I'm not being narrow-minded, I'm being cynical. The one who's narrow-minded here is you, who can't accept other people's opinions and lash out at them.

    At first I thought he was some type of weird pervert too, it's engraved in my Asian mindset that women shouldn't talk about periods. I didn't even know what they were until like 7th grade when my friend starting bleeding. I'd never even heard about it from my mom, apparently she had kept her pads hidden inside a deep corner in our bathroom, like under the sink, like under some toilet paper, in a walmart bag.
