Korean actress Choi Ji-woo will be visiting the Kingdom of Swaziland in South Africa to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate.

Documentary producer With Culture explained in a press release that Choi traveled to Swaziland for a week-long stay starting Tuesday to help install a hand pump as part of her effort to help children undergoing difficulties in the drought-stricken region.

The actress will also provide a character of herself for use in an animation to be used to educate children in the area of hygiene.

"I am glad to be of at least a bit of help to this part of the world which is rarely noticed. Hopefully, this will create awareness of the hardships that the people are facing", Choi was quoted as saying.

With Culture will shoot a documentary of Choi's relief work in Swaziland which is scheduled to air on April13 on MBC.

Choi, 34, became a household name throughout Asia with the success of "Winter Sonata" also starring actor Bae Yong-joon.
