Kim Yeon-kyung, who plays for Heungkuk Life Insurance, a women’s professional volleyball team, and is the ‘icon’ of Korean women’s volleyball, takes action to recover from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association (hereafter Hope Bridge) said that Kim Yeon-kyung will start a fundraising campaign with her fans to help recover from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.
Kim Yeon-kyung is in charge of the Hope Bridge public relations ambassador. He asked her to help her recover from the Turkiye-Syrian earthquake through her own social media (SNS) in the past 8 days.
Two strong earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.5 on the 6th were followed by several aftershocks in southern Turkey and northern Syria. This caused great damage, and the cumulative death toll exceeded 20,000 as of the 9th.
Not only sports stars such as Kim Yeon-kyung, but also domestic and foreign figures are taking the lead in recovering the damage. In addition, donations and support for restoration activities are continuing from the international community, including Korea.
Kim Yeon-kyung donated 10 million won through her Hope Bridge. Donations can be made through Kakao’s donation platform, ‘Together Value’. The collected funds will be used for reconstruction and recovery in Turkey and Syria, which were damaged by the earthquake.
Through ‘Lion At’, which is in charge of her management, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I decided to join in to encourage social interest for the people of Turkey and Syria, who suffered great damage.” This is not the first time Kim Yeon-kyung has made a donation. 토토사이트
In 2020, she gave 50 million won to overcome the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). In 2021, she delivered 30 million won to help ‘disaster-crisis families’ who are in or are likely to face economic, emotional, and social difficulties.
He was appointed as an ambassador of hope in October 2021 and is also active as a member of the Hope Bridge Honors Club, a large donation group of over 100 million won.
Kim Jeong-hee, secretary general of Hope Bridge, added, “I am grateful to Kim Yeon-kyung, who once again exerted a good influence.”
Hope Bridge, an organization specializing in disaster relief fundraising, is a purely private organization established in 1961 by the efforts of newspapers, broadcasting companies, and social groups across the country. It is also the only statutory relief organization that can support relief funds for natural disaster damage in Korea.
Kim Yeon-kyung and Turkiye have a relationship. He signed with Fenerbahçe in 2011 and entered the Turkiye League. He played for Fenerbahçe until 2017 and after one season in the Chinese League, he came back to the Turkiye League in 2018 in the Exzashi Bashi uniform. He played 10 seasons in Turkey alone.
The Turquoise League has been suspended for the 2022-23 season due to the earthquake. Meanwhile, Heungkuk Life Insurance will play a home game against IBK Industrial Bank at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on the 11th. Heungkuk Life Insurance is in second place with 20 wins and 6 losses (60 points) as of the 10th, and is in fierce competition with Hyundai Engineering & Construction (21 wins, 5 losses, 60 points).
