Recently the cochlear implant centered charity The Snail of Love announced that actress Yoo In-na paid for a cochlear implant surgery on a thirteen month old child. The surgery took place on August 27th at Seoul National University Hospital. Yoo In-na also committed to pay for the child's speech therapy going forward.
Yoo In-na has long been a prominent donor for The Snail of Love charity, which is named that because the Korean word for cochlear implants is the same word for snail. Funding provided by Yoo In-na has allowed for cochlear implant surgery on five children to date, with eight more currently planned. Dramawise, Yoo In-na will next appear in "The Spies Who Loved Me", which will start airing in October.
