Jo In Sung Takes A Generous Initiative By Participating In Relief Operations
Jo In Sung is indeed more than just a sought-after actor but also a person with a big heart.
Jo In Sung, together with That Winter The Wind Blows writer Noh Hee Kyung, and famous monk,Venerable Pomnyun Sunim participated in meaningful international relief activities.
He donated gas burners for refugees in Rhodes, near Coxbajar, Bangladesh on January 22nd through the support of JTS.
The Join Together Society (JTS), established by Veneralble Pomnyun, is an international relief organization for the UN Economic and Social Council. It goals to resolve poverty with fellow asians.
JTS visited Cox’s Bazar Rohingya refugee camp in October 2017 and January 2018. They provided food, bed, mosquito nets and blankets to the refugees.
In addition, the local UN agency World Food Programme (WFP) sought help for gas burner support due to an urgent fuel problem. In line with it, 100,000 gas burners were ordered and the donation was rolled out on January 22.
The gas burners will help 500,000 refugees to fight malnutrition through complete preparation of food.
“I was worried about children’s faces if they look depressed or dark, but I’m glad they look brighter than I thought,” Jo In Sung warmly said.
Furthermore, writer Noh Hee Kyung added,” Without the help of relief organizations, the refugee community would have been a disaster. I felt how important it is to continuously support and care.”
Jo and Noh had another life-affirming moment on the day when the WFP visited the Learning Center, a school program run by the United Nations’ refugee camp. The two handed out biscuits containing nutrients to children.
Additionally, Venerable Pomnyun said “If children in India go to the forest alone, girls are at greater risk of being exposed to sexual harassment. We agreed to the project just because there is such a risk here as well.”
This is not the first time Jo In Sung joined Venerable Pomnyun in his advocacies. The actor was also spotted last year in China with a group of tourist together with actress Bae Jong Ok and Noh Hee Kyung.
Jo In Sung last worked in acclaimed 2018 historical film, The Great Battle.
