Korean sports are helping Turkey, which was hit by the earthquake.
According to the Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association, the online fundraising campaign to recover from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, which started on the evening of the 9th, exceeded 300 million won in just two days. This was possible because this campaign started with volleyball star Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance). Kim Yeon-kyung requested support for the affected area through her Kakao’s donation flat spring in-like value, and first donated 10 million won. Then, many fans joined in.
Kim Yeon-kyung played for Fenerbahce in Turkiye from 2011 to 2017. From 2018 to 2020 he played for Exzashi Bashi. He is one of the sports stars with deep ties to Türkiye. Through his popular entertainment in the past, he made known the life of Turkiye, and he is known to have many close friends.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who was appointed 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, and is steadily practicing sharing.
Kim Min-jae (Naples), a soccer star with ties to Turkey like Kim Yeon-kyung, also donated 100 million won to the Korean Committee for UNICEF on the 11th, requesting that it be used for emergency relief. She also made her donation public by asking to help Türkiye through her social media. 온라인카지노
Kim Min-jae spent the last 2021-2022 season at Turkey’s prestigious Fenerbahce. Although he only played one season, Kim Min-jae played as the core of the team and was loved. Even after moving to Italy’s Serie A Napoli, many fans of Fenerbahce follow Kim Min-jae’s social media to express their affection. An official from Minjae Kim’s agency, Orange Ball, said, “I have many good memories of Minjae Kim wearing the Türkiye Fenerbahce uniform. The support of Fenerbahçe fans always remains in the heart of the player, and it seems that the pain of the Turkiye children has come more painfully. I hope that Kim Min-jae will be of some help, even if it is a small force, and I sincerely hope that his brother country, Turkiye, will return to a peaceful daily life as soon as possible.”
Meanwhile, the Korea Volleyball Federation is conducting a fundraising campaign to support earthquake damage recovery in Turkey and Syria as the third social contribution donation campaign with Blueberry Meta and Naver Happy Bean, which are the NFT (Non-Fungible Token) business rights. The federation is conducting a total of three donation campaigns to help the socially vulnerable and create a healthy donation culture in which players, clubs, and fans all participate. This 3rd campaign will be conducted through the donation platform ‘Naver Happy Bean’ for about 7 weeks from the 11th to the 31st of next month. Fundraising is made to support the recovery of damage in Turkey and Syria, which lost their livelihoods due to the massive earthquake. The amount raised by the fans and 25 million won prepared by the federation will be delivered to both countries.
