  • The sanitary pads will benefit around 500 adolescents in 62 regional children’s centers across the country

Actress Park Shin Hye, who already gave away 230 million won ($208,000) this year, made another meaningful one recently for teenagers from low-income families in South Korea.

Park's agency, Salt Entertainment, said in a statement obtained by South Korean outlet Daily Sports that the "Heirs" star recently donated 90,000 sanitary pads to teens in need. The donation is said to have amounted to 20 million won ($18,100).

The actress made the donation "through the Starlight Angel Project with Korea Food for the Hungry International (KFHI) and her fans," the company stated.

The sanitary pads will be given away to around 500 adolescents in 62 regional children's centers across South Korea, including Seoul and Gwangju. These include 38 of KFHI’s child community centers called Happy Home School and 24 centers recommended by the Korea Child Welfare Center Association.

Park has been actively involved in social causes and philanthropic work for years. Back in 2011, the actress worked as a goodwill ambassador for hunger relief. She has been involved with Starlight Angel Project since 2012 and has helped provide aid to children in Korea and across the globe together with her fans.

"Shin Hye Center," which was established in 2012 and 2016 in Ghana and the Philippines, respectively, is a multi-purpose education center, according to Soompi.

Children in South Korea were also offered a pleasant learning space facilitated through the renovation support project of Hwado Happy Home School, which is located in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province.

Park continues to provide assistance and support for needy children and teenagers this year. She gave 50 million won ($45,100) to a night-time child protection program for the Kia policy named "Starlight School."

The program has been managed by the local children's center Happy Home School for hunger countermeasures since 2004. The goal of the organization is to shield and take care of vulnerable children from neglect as well as crimes.

Addressing Park's fans who joined hands in the various donations she made this year, her agency said, "We hope that all the children and teenagers who are in difficulty are able to have a warm holiday through the donations made by Park Shin Hye and her fans. We thank everyone who lent a helping hand."

Park has starred in a number of hit TV shows and movies over the years, including "Memories of the Alhambra," "Doctors," "The Heirs" and "#Alive."
