Chinese Charity Commits to Donate USD 600,000 to THF



China’s Huamin Charity Foundation has committed to donate USD 600,000 to the Taekwondo Humanitarian Foundation, or THF, and the World Taekwondo Federation, or WTF, to establish taekwondo academies for refugee children.

The money will be used to establish purpose-built taekwondo facilities in Jordan, Rwanda and Ethiopia over the next three years. The three academies will be run by the WTF and its associated charity initiative, the Switzerland-based THF.

Lu Dezhi, chairman of the Beijing-based Huamin Charity Foundation, flew to Seoul to sign the donation contract at the headquarters of the World Taekwondo Federation with WTF President Chungwon Choue on December 4, 2016.

The THF, which was established with Choue as its president in April 2016, has the mission of empowering refugee children by teaching them the sport and martial art of taekwondo. As one of the most economical and easily deployed sports on earth – one that requires virtually no equipment – it is ideal for refugees, who often have little or nothing to do all day.

The WTF and THF are already operating a taekwondo academy in a CARE facility in the Azraq camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan. The Huamin funds will be used to build a purpose-built taekwondo academy. Following that, another facility will be built in Rwanda and Ethiopia.
