To celebrate the upcoming release of PSH’s first Chinese movie, his comeback work, we have decided to do a little charity work on his behalf.
Through World Vision*, we have sponsored a child in Africa in Park Si Hoo’s name. We have chosen Eric because he shares the same birthdate with PSH — April 3 — only 30 years younger (he’s born in 2008 which makes him 6.)
Eric is from Rwanda which ranks #173 in July 2014 among the PSH4U countries (in terms of hits). We have chosen a child from Africa because of PSH’s African connection. We tried to find a child in Ivory Coast where PSH went in 2009 but this country is not in the program.
Our fellow PSH fans in China are doing exceptional good works in China, so we thought we’d spread the cheer to other parts of the world in need of assistance.
We still have money left over from the rice wreaths donation for PSH’s birthday bash at Buyeo in April 2014. Once again, we thank our members for their generous contributions. aa
* From World Vision on “How sponsorship works”: The goal of World Vision’s child sponsorship is to make life better for children. Our child sponsorship programs have four basic aspirations that guide our work and on which our work is measured. Children have the right to enjoy good health; be educated for life; be cared for, protected, and participating in their communities; and experience the love of God and their neighbors.
(P.S. Ashley: I am very familiar with this child sponsorship program. My family has been sponsoring 10 kids for several years.)
This is PSH in the Ivory Coast in September 2009 where he went on the SBS Hope Mission (printscreens from video – sorry about quality):
