‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung (35, Heungkuk Life Insurance) stepped out to help Turkey and Syria, which suffered earthquake damage.

The Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association, an organization specializing in disaster relief fundraising, said on the 9th, “Kim Yeon-kyung and her fans will start a fundraising campaign to help recover from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.”

On the 6th (local time), two strong earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.5 struck Turkey and Syria. As of the 9th, the cumulative death toll due to the earthquake is known to have exceeded 20,000.

In response, Kim Yeon-kyung donated 10 million won to help Turkey and Syria. An official from Ryan At, Kim Yeon-kyung’s agency, explained, “Kim Yeon-kyung decided to join her in order to encourage her social interest for the people of Turkey and Syria, who suffered devastating damage.”

She encouraged her fans to donate through the Kakao donation platform ‘Together Value’. The collected donations will be used for reconstruction and recovery in Turkey and Syria, which were damaged by the earthquake.

This is not the first time Kim Yeon-kyung has made a donation. In 2020, she donated 50 million won to overcome Corona 19, and in 2021, she donated 30 million won to help families in disaster crisis who are in or are likely to face economic, emotional, and social difficulties. Kim Yeon-kyung, who was commissioned as an ambassador of hope in October 2021, is also active as a member of the Hope Bridge Honors Club, a large donation group of over 100 million won. 바카라
