A welfare center named after the actress Kim Hye-ja opened on Saturday in Ethiopia. The Baekhak Village OBS Kim Hae-ja Center provides meals, accommodation, medication, and early child education to 230 orphans and children from poor families between four and six.
The project was made possible with a donation of US$150,000 from Baik Sung-hak, the chairman of Young An Hat Company, who promised it when Kim hosted a program on OBS, a regional terrestrial channel in Gyeonggi Province and Incheon. Kim expressed hope that Ethiopia can eventually overcome poverty and show the world what it can do.
