A village named after TV show host Kang Ho-dong will be built in Sudan.
"Kang is planning to start a project to open a school and build other facilities for children in Sudan," the Green Umbrella Childfund Korea (http://eng.childfund.or.kr/main.do) said on Wednesday.
According to the foundation, Kang, who is taking a break from show business that could prove permanent, has been engaging in various efforts to support children as a sponsor of the foundation since 2005.
Kang recently told the charity group that he wanted to help young children in southern Sudan, so it suggested the project.
"We expect it will cost tens of millions of won (US$1=W1,128), but the specific sum and other details have yet to be worked out," a foundation staffer said.
