Skeleton sledder Yun Sung-bin recently donated W20 million for victims of child abuse to global charity Good Neighbors (US$1=W1,197).
The NGO said Thursday that Yun, who won a gold medal in the men's skeleton competition at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, wants to support children who suffered abuse and victims of typhoon Tapah, which swept southern parts of Korea in late September.
Yun also donated W10 million to the same organization last year.
"When I heard about those unprotected children on the news, I thought about ways to lend a helping hand and decided to make a donation," he said. "Although it's not a huge amount, I hope that can bring a little help and encouragement."
