On May 14, it was revealed that the songstress made a donation of 10 million won as a way to aid families affected by the pandemic. This marks her second donation towards helping families left vulnerable during this crisis, having donated 30 million won to the city of Gwacheon.

Prior to this, IU also donated 100 million to Good Neighbors, a humanitarian organization which helps out families and frontliners in the crisis. The singer also purchased 100 million won worth of personal protective equipment, which was donated to the doctors of the Korean Medical Association.

Earlier this month, IU made her yearly donation to the Green Umbrella Children’s Foundation in honor of Children’s Day.
