In the past ten years, Keun-Ho built an impressive resume of activities he organised to help people in need. He made financial donations to cover damages caused by forest fires in the Gangwon province in 2019 and acquire medical equipment to fight the consequences of Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. He hosted numerous charity matches and football clinics, arranged scholarships for young players, provided them with football equipment, and covered medical fees for a player who suffered a heart attack in 2011, and those of another player, Gi-Suk Cha, who was coping with a kidney failure since 2010.
This year, Keun-Ho initiated a fundraiser for Sang-Chul Yoo, a former national team player and coach, who was trying to overcome pancreatic cancer and needed financial support to cover hospital fees. Unfortunately Sang-Chul passed away in June. To commemorate him, Keun-Ho decided to organise a second fundraiser, this time for Sang-Chul’s family.
