Professional League of Legends player Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has donated $25,000 (30 million South Korean won) to the Coronvavirus (COVID-19) cause.

South Korea is the second-largest number in regards to the confirmed coronavirus cases of any country after China. Many popular esports figures have pitched in to help with the cause and it seems Faker is doing his part.

Faker’s teammates in the T1 organization will also be donating this week’s streaming revenue to the cause.

“I felt devastated for those that are working day and night to battle the COVID-19,” Faker said. “I really wanted to aid those battling the outbreak and felt that donating to the Community Chest of Korea was the optimal choice. I hope that everyone bands together to overcome this terrible situation, and hope to see real support being given to those necessary.”

The coronavirus has led to many esports events either getting postponed or canceled. The LCK was postponed on Friday, China’s LPL was also postponed back January.
