On May 10, the multi-platinum international powerhouse pop star PSY made a contribution to the Special Projects of the United Nations Secretary General Trust Fund. The money will be used to advance the objectives of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s efforts to eradicate extreme poverty, and to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by the end of 2015. It will also be used to promote the UN’s “Every Woman Every Child” health initiative.
While visiting the U.N. headquarters in October 2012, PSY first met U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Both hailing from Korea, they bonded over a shared global consciousness, and the performer even taught the politician his signature "Gangnam Style" dance. The Secretary General's efforts inspired the superstar, who wanted to support the initiatives as much as he could. Now, he's contributed a sum to this particular Trust aiding Ki-moon's efforts.
