Kim Min-jae→Hwang Hee-chan’s ‘Kookdae 96s’ bring hope to Vietnamese soccer dreamers

In January, the Korea National Football Team 96s, a group of soccer players born in 1996, announced a series of donations to domestic relief organizations, including Pyeongchang Samcheon, Good Neighbors, and G Foundation.

On the 11th, Pyeonghwa Samcheon (Executive Director Kwak Dong-cheol) announced that it attended the completion ceremony of the ‘House of Love’ and ‘Bridge of Hope’, which were built with donations from the ‘Korea National Football Team 96s’ to improve living conditions in Camau Province, Vietnam.

The Korea National Football Team 96s are comprised of Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Na Sang-ho, Baek Seung-ho, Cho Yoo-min, Hwang In-beom, and Hwang Hee-chan. They were the main players who advanced to the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and on Jan. 6, they delivered a donation of 20 million won to Pyeongchang Samcheon through the soccer YouTube channel ‘Shoot for Love’.

(Under the name of the Korea National Football Team 96s, Pyeonghwa Samcheon built seven ‘houses of love’ for vulnerable people living in Camau Province, Vietnam, and one ‘bridge of hope’ for the safe movement of local residents. Vietnam’s Camau Province is the southernmost province in the country, an eight-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, with a terrain made up of thousands of rivers and streams.

(Since 2012, Pyeonghwa Samcheon has been building the ‘House of Love’ and ‘Bridge of Hope’ here to improve the safe living conditions of local residents.

On June 28, at the completion ceremony of the ‘House of Love’ in Cân Van Thuy County, Camau Province, Vietnam, we met two young people who are pursuing their dreams of becoming soccer players despite their difficult circumstances. Brothers Thach Minh That (18, M) and Thach Minh Tha (13, M) said they were inspired to play soccer by watching Vietnamese soccer players at the 2018 Asian Games, and they are pursuing their dreams of playing as midfielders for their local youth team.

Park Chang-il, chairman of the steering committee of Pyeongchang Samcheon, who attended the completion ceremony of the House of Love, said, “Not only is it an opportunity to connect Korea and Vietnam through ‘soccer’ through the sponsorship of the Korean national soccer team, but we hope that the two brothers will grow into Vietnamese soccer players in a house sponsored by the Korean national soccer team.” 메이저사이트

At the inauguration ceremony of the ‘Bridge of Hope’ in Thuy Binh County, Camau Province, Vietnam, the Chairman of the local People’s Committee said, “Large and small rivers isolate villages and make it difficult to move around, but with the construction of the ‘Bridge of Hope’ in this area, villagers can safely cross the rivers. I would like to express my gratitude to the Korea National Football Team 96s.”
