As the Russian invasion continues in Ukraine, actress and member of K-Pop band Girl’s Day, Lee Hyeri (이혜리), joins a slew of Korean celebrities publicly showing their assistance to the victims of war. 

Lee Hyeri donated 50 million KRW (~42,000 USD) for the children in Ukraine to the non-governmental organization Save the Children
 Lee Hyeri stated:
“I am making a small contribution to give of at least a little bit of strength to the powerless children enduring difficult times in this war. I wish for a world without war and horror.” 

The amount will be spent to acquire food, emergency and medical supplies, support,  education, and children’s mental health protection programs for the young Ukrainians in need. 

DISCLAIMER: The purpose of my 'Korean Celebrities Supports Ukraine' series of posts is to show you, guys, that there are lots of people all around the world, in particular in Korea, people you may have never even heard of. But these people are not indifferent to Ukraine (although many of them haven't ever been in Ukraine or haven't even had a Wikipedia page in Ukrainian), they knows about your struggle and suffering, and they do care. We do care.

I've told this to my Ukrainian friends and I'm telling you all: whatever happens, Ukraine is not alone. You are not alone.

So you should not be discouraged, you should stay strong-willed and keep fighting for your freedom. Sure you will be victorious!

Glory to Ukraine and 대한 독립 만세!
