Actress Lee Young-ae has donated 100 million won to a local hospital foundation to treat child cancer patients.

She made the generous contribution to the Yonsei University Health System on Dec. 6 asking that the money be used to fund various research conducted by its Severance Hospitals in treating child cancer patients and help people in need.

Including the money, Lee is known to have donated nearly 500 million won last year alone for low-income and multicultural families, and low-income pregnant women.
