YG donates 100 million won to Save the Children…Supports music therapy for children who are victims of abuse [Official]


[OSEN = Reporter Ji Min-kyung] YG announced on the 19th that it had provided 100 million won in donations for the emotional stability and healthy growth of children who were victims of abuse.

YG Entertainment recently held a donation ceremony for the Save the Children Music Therapy Support Project for Children Victims of Abuse event at its new building in Hapjeong-dong, Seoul, with YG Co-CEO Hwang Bo-kyung, Save the Children President Jeong Tae-young, and External Cooperation Department Head Kim Hee-kwon attending..

The donation delivered on this day will be used to operate four specialized child protection institutions (Seoul, Bucheon, Ansan, and Ulsan) under the international children’s rights NGO Save the Children. In particular, we plan to build a music therapy room to operate customized treatment programs for children who have been victims of abuse, including music therapy and psychological therapy through language and play therapy.

In addition, YG and Save the Children promote the emotional stability and healthy growth and development of abused children by reducing the aftereffects of abuse through the ‘Music Therapy Support Project for Children Victims of Abuse’ and help children return to their daily lives. They promised active mutual cooperation to achieve this.

YG said, “We are very happy to have this meaningful opportunity to support the healthy growth of children and adolescents and contribute to society through music,” and added, “We sincerely hope that children who have experienced difficult times can return to their daily lives as soon as possible.” “Hopefully, we will continue to fulfill our social responsibilities through various social contribution activities,” he said.

In 2018, YG participated in a social contribution program ‘WITH’ with Save the Children. We first met while co-running a campaign. Through this, we have carried out campaign promotion activities with our artists throughout the year to raise awareness of the difficult situation children around the world face and to encourage many people to participate in the promotion of children’s rights.

Meanwhile, starting with the ‘YG WITH campaign’ in 2009, YG Entertainment has been spreading its positive influence by actively taking the lead in realizing social value through a culture of sharing such as donations, volunteer work, and social contribution. /mk3244@osen.co.kr
