Actress Park Shin Hye donates 20 million KRW worth of sanitary pads for low income families after already donating 230 million KRW this year

AKP STAFF

Actress Park Shin Hye, who already donated 230 million KRW this year, made another donation of sanitary pads for girls from low-income families.

According to Salt Entertainment, Park Shin Hye's agency, the actress donated about 90,000 sanitary pads mounting up to 20 million KRW for teenage girls from low-income families in Korea. She made the donation through the International Relief Development NGO 'Hope Friend Project'.

The sanitary pads will be provided to about 500 children at 62 regional children's centers nationwide, including Seoul and Gwangju, including 38 'Happy Homeschool' centers and two recommended by the Korea Association of Local Children's Centers.

Earlier, Park Shin Hye has been working as a goodwill ambassador for hunger relief since 2011 and has been working with fans on the 'Starlight Angel Project' since 2012 to help children in Korea and overseas. In 2012 and 2016, 'Shinhye Center', a multi-purpose education center, was established in Ghana, Africa, and Manila, the Philippines. In Korea, children were presented with a pleasant learning space through the renovation support project of 'Hwado Happy Home School' located in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province.

In October, the actress has continued to provide support for children and teenagers this year as well, including 50 million KRW given for the "Starlight School," a night-time child protection program for the Kia policy. "Starlight School" is a night-time child protection program that has been operated by the local children's center "Happy Home School" for hunger countermeasures since 2004 to protect vulnerable children from neglect and crimes.

Park Shin Hye's agency left a message of thanks to all the fans who participated in the various donations this year. The company said, "We hope that all the children and teenagers who are in difficulty are able to have a warm holiday through the donations made by Park Shin Hye and her fans. We thank everyone who lent a helping hand."

There has been an increasing trend of income inequality in SK, such massive donations are a proof of how bad the situation is where basic sanitation facilities become unaffordable. My country has heavily subsidized sanitary pads to the point that it costs a mere 15krw(1 INR) per pad, basic sanitation should not a difficult task to access if we claim to fight for women empowerment.

👏👏👏👏👏A very kind gesture and I'm sure the recipients will be very grateful. It's a crime though that sanitary items aren't free in the first place. The cost of feminine hygiene products is an economic burden on women worldwide.
