Suga, a South Korean K-pop idol, has contributed ₩ 1,000,000 (about USD 76,000) to aid relief efforts for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria. The non-governmental organization, Save The Children announced the contribution on March 9, Suga’s birthday. According to the foundation, Suga’s gift would be utilized to purchase blankets, beds, and other necessary items for earthquake-affected areas.
Suga, a member of the famed K-pop group BTS, offered his sympathies and condolences to the earthquake survivors and victims. He also expressed his hope that his gift might bring some relief to the youngsters devastated by the catastrophe. This is not Suga’s first time donating to philanthropic causes. He has previously donated to the Hope Bridge Disaster Relief Society, the Korea Pediatric Cancer Fund, and child cancer sufferers at Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital.
Suga’s gift is the most recent in a string of charity gestures by musicians to aid in the relief efforts in Turkey and Syria. AJ Tracey, a British rapper, released a limited edition t-shirt last month, with earnings going to the Islamic Relief organization. Simultaneously, a charity concert was arranged by numerous performers, including The WAEVE and The Big Pink, to raise funds for earthquake victims. Choose Love organized the event, which included DJs such as Nadine Shah and Swim Deep, among others.
Recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have caused enormous damage, resulting in numerous deaths, injuries, and displacements. The international world has banded together to assist people affected by the calamities. Glastonbury, for example, has given supporters the opportunity to win tickets to this year’s event through a prize draw; with earnings benefiting the Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal.
Suga’s donation to earthquake relief operations in Turkey and Syria emphasizes the need of assisting people in need. It also highlights the importance that artists can play in raising awareness and motivating people to act. While the globe grapples with multiple difficulties, such as natural catastrophes, poverty, and health crises, every little amount helps.
