Fans Inspired By A BTS Band Member Raised Funds To Build A School For The Underprivileged
In honour of BTS member Kim Taehyung's birthday, a number of fans held a fundraiser to build a school in rural Vietnam recently
Vietnamese fans of Taehyung, also known as 'V', raised over VND230,000,000 (RM45,000) to construct a school for disadvantaged children in the Dien Bien province.
The project, 'Together With Taehyung, Lighting Up The Dream To Go To School', was launched last December in conjunction with Taehyung's 24th birthday
The fan page also asked for donations from other fans and explained that the inspiration behind this project is Taehyung's love and affection for children.
On 26 December 2018, four days before the idol's birthday, a ceremony was held at the empty site to launch the project and mark the beginning of construction.
The school was finally opened on Sunday, 5 May, after five months of construction
Good job, BTS ARMY!
