Brothers Heo Woong and Heo Hoon, basketball stars, participate in donations to support children’s meals for COVID-19


Save the Children, an international relief and development NGO, announced on the 15th that they held a donation delivery ceremony to help children in crisis of hunger with brothers Heo Woong and Heo Hoon, basketball players. On this day, brothers Heo Woong and Heo Hoon donated 30 million won to the COVID-19 child meal support project.

Brothers Heo Woong and Heo Hoon, who are currently active as basketball players in Wonju DB and Suwon KT, respectively, conducted a donation challenge in which they donate as much as the sweat and mileage they collected during the day on the YouTube channel ‘Sam Rich Man’. While performing various missions such as racing, training, and riding, he stepped on the pedals to collect sweat, and decided to donate 30 million won including the mileage collected on the day through Save the Children. The brothers have been doing good by participating in a donation challenge to support youth or supporting children from disadvantaged groups who are having difficulties in life.

Brothers Heo Woong and Heo Hoon, basketball players, said, “We have decided to support children from vulnerable social groups who are suffering from COVID-19 so that they can live healthy lives without worrying about meals. We hope that through a well-balanced diet, children will grow up healthy and gain the strength to nurture their dreams of the future.”

Save the Children is running a ‘Covid-19 Child Meal Support’ campaign for children in crisis who cannot eat properly due to the absence of a guardian or financial difficulties. In the case of children from low-income families, who were provided with meals and supplemented with meals at schools and local children’s centers, non-face-to-face classes continue due to COVID-19, and they are in a more serious crisis of starvation as they do not receive school meals or meal support from local children’s centers. In response, Save the Children delivers a three-course lunch box consisting of low-sodium and healthy side dishes and an easy-to-cook two-meal kit for a total of 5 meals twice a week, providing a healthy life for children with balanced food. are supporting
