Korean Artists and NGO in motion

   Two months ago I was looking frantically for any news on that and all I could find (I mean news on some substantial help, not "let's record the song and sell it" crap) was Park Yongha, Kim Namgil and JYJ boys. Now, looks like more artists do more than talking.
This time it's about Lee Seungcheol.

Lee Seung-chul to Build School in Africa 

Singer Lee Seung-chul will visit Chad on Sunday to build a school in one of the world's poorest regions. A press release from his agency said Tuesday Lee will join efforts to build schools by Good Neighbors, an international humanitarian and development NGO.  

Lee's family are expected to accompany him.

Lee was inspired by watching a TV program about the project last year and will donate profits from his concert tours and sale of CDs for the school. Last year, the late actor Park Yong-ha took part in the project to build another school in Africa.

Lee's eldest daughter, who is studying fine arts, is going to present paintings to the school. Lee's visit to Chad will filmed for TV and aired on SBS in May. / Mar. 25, 2011 07:15 KST
