Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that is taking over the world, Super Junior’s Indian Fanbase, Indian ELF(s) has come forward to help the frontliners fighting the virus in our country.
Indian ELF(s) has been raising funds for the last few weeks and the fandom donated an amount of Rs 13000 to Indian branch of United Way Organisation (uwindia), a non profit organisation already working with various other firms/charities across the country to help fight COVID-19. The amount will be used to help provide masks, PPEs, sanitizers etc. for the frontliners fighting COVID-19 in India.
United Way is an organisation that aims to advance the common good, by providing education for all, stable income and good health by collaborating with different charitable organisations to pool efforts in fundraising and support. The organisation has already been doing their bit and teaming up with various other firms/associations to help provide essentials and other items for the frontliners and the less priviledged.
As a token of appreciation to Indian ELF(s) and Super Junior, uwindia wrote a blog on Super Junior and its Fandom and thanked them for coming forward to help in this difficult times.
We are thankful to @SJofficial & @IndianELFs for stepping up in this difficult time and offering your generous support to United Way India. You have shared the gift of hope to so many people in need. Together, WE can make a change.https://t.co/ffWWZMX4fN

Indian ELF(s) has been active since 2010 and has also previously raised funds to donate in various projects like building a school and drinking water wells in South Africa for SuJu’s anniversary, donating to UNICEF for children suffering around the world and recently, the fandom has also made a donation to ‘The Humsafar Trust’ to support the LGBTQ community.
It is really heartwarming to see K-pop fandoms getting inspired by their artists/groups and coming forward to help the people fighting in the frontline against COVID-19, and also the less priviledged section of people in such difficult times when there are limited resources.
