In 2011, Girls' Generation visited an 11-year-old Cambodian fan named Nove Selaili in Korea University’s Ansan Hospital, where the youngster was having surgery for a heart problem.

Members Tiffany, Yoona, and Hyoyeon lent their support to Nove, who was able to travel to Korea for the surgery thanks to help from KBS, Children’s Foundation, Korea University Ansan Hospital, and Girls' Generation. 

The touching experience was filmed and broadcast for KBS, which ended with Nove and her mother reuniting with Girls' Generation live on stage.

Now. six years later, Nove, her mother, and other Cambodian Girls' Generation fans have teamed up to raise money for the Kantha Bopha Children's Hospital. 

Some fans over at the One Hallyu forum have shared photos of Nove's charitable initiative, which you can see here

It's great to see that Nove is doing so well these days and paying her good fortune forward in life.
