Actress Moon Geun-young has made donations for the patients diagnosed with childhood cancer and incurable diseases for the past 13 years, Korean news reported Friday.

“Moon is one of the major donors who made consistent donations,” an official from the organization said. “At first she donated anonymously, but her identity was revealed when she was acknowledged as an Honor Society member in 2015. We hope Moon’s donation can contribute to forming a healthy donation culture in our society.”
Moon is part of the organization’s Honor Society, an honorary membership to renowned individuals that have made significant donations to the organization. Actors Ahn Jae-wook, Park Hae-jin, Yoona of Girls’ Generation, Suzy of Miss A and soccer player Park Ji-sung, among others, are part of the society.
