Girls’ Generation has been appointed as ambassadors for the Korean Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (KRPS).
Korean Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (KRPS) is an organisation that helps those who are visually impaired and conducts research for a treatment, while also supporting the welfare and rehabilitation of those affected by this illness.
KRPS talked about the difficulties they were facing, “Recently, through research that was conducted overseas, a lot of people have been able to regain their sights. But in Korea, there aren’t a lot of facilities that supported such research.”
They continued saying, “Even with these difficulties, thanks to K-Pop and Girls’ Generation, as well as Girls’ Generation’s international fansite ‘Soshified’, which consisted of many fans from America and Canada, decided to help raise funds for our organisation. Also an agency in Australia called ‘Aus2one Entertainment’ has organised a small K-Pop concert to be held in July in two cities, Sydney and Melbourne, calling the event, ‘KRPS Charity Concert’.” Lastly, they expressed their gratitude saying, “Even though it is an organisation outside their own country, to help out with a cause in Korea, we are just delighted and very grateful.”
KRPS representative spoke out about the members being appointed as the ambassadors, “Girls’ Generation’s members have had interest in this cause and have frequently donated to this society. When we asked SM Entertainment about the members being appointed ambassadors, they happily accepted our request.”
The ceremony to appoint the Girls’ Generation members as ambassadors for the Korean Retinitis Pigmentosa Society will be held at the Ara Marina Convention in Gimpo, Kyeong-gi Do, on April 14th.
