Park Yong-ha's Japanese Fans To Establish School in Africa

Actor Park Yong-ha's Japanese fans have made donations to establish a school in Africa.

According to a statement from Park Yong-ha's agency, Yona Entertainment, which was released on June 7, Japanese cable broadcasting channel Mnet Japan had received 4.2 million yen (amounting to 57 million won) from Park Yong-ha's Japanese fans as donations and delivered the contributions to Good Neighbors, which is an international humanitarian and development NGO, last month.

Park Yong-ha had appeared in a program entitled "Hope TV" on SBS last August. In the program, he had participated in volunteer activities in Chad, located on the African continent, and the program had been introduced in Japan last January on Mnet Japan through a program entitled "Innocent World - Park Yong-ha's Trip to Africa". At that time, Mnet Japan held an event to draw donations from his fans to help children in Africa. Good Neighbors is planning to build a school named "Yona School" in the suburban area of Chad's capital city of N Djamena and provide formal education for local children. Yona is the nickname of Park Yong-ha.

Good Neighbors held a groundbreaking ceremony to establish a school in the local area at the end of last month, and Park Yong-ha visited Chad again from May 22 for one week to participate in the ceremony and he also participated in other voluntary activities. His activities will be introduced again through SBS's "Hope TV".

A spokesperson from his agency said, "The small country village lags behind without enough infrastructure, and more than that, there is no school, so the Yona school will be very useful for children living there".

Park Yong-ha recently has been cast as the main actor of the "Love Song - Drama" remake of the Hong Kong movie "Tianmimi" and he will go on concert tours from June 19, targeting 16 cities in Japan.
