On the 11th February, Lee Jun Ki, Kim Ha Neul and the crew of cable channel tvN joined hands together with Good Neighbors, a world international relief organization, traveled to the outskirts of Jakarta, Indonesia
Kim and Lee made friends with the villagers particularly a family with three children, namely Vicky (9), Dimas (7) and Putri (11). The three children who live with their grandmother Rantes (70) survive by collecting rubbish from the neighbourhood dumping ground, recycling the waste (picking out things) to sell for money. The father of the children is currently missing.
The party donated 7.5 million won in funds, a classroom computer and basketball goalpost to the school where Vicky, Dimas and Putri goes to.
Lee Jun-ki took many photos during the trip and he said that he learned many things from the simple ways of the children. Lee also said that he hopes to return to this outreach and perhaps in future, sponsor a global village of poor children.
This television program will be broadcast in two parts on 21st and 28th March, 2009 respectively. It will be on tvN at 9pm (Seoul time).
