MANILA -- As a way to give back to Filipino fans, South Korean girl group Momoland will donate its earnings from an upcoming concert to needy Filipino children, its agency, MLD Entertainment, said.

In a statement, MLD Entertainment said Momoland's earnings through the event "Good Friends in Manila" will be donated to children from barangays San Jose and Calawis in Antipolo City.

The show will be staged at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on October 5. The children, meanwhile, will receive clothes and other necessities on October 25.

Momoland will perform with Kim Jaehwan and Ha Sungwon, former members of the group Wanna One, for "Good Friends in Manila." The concert will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on October 5.

The group also plans to hold charity events annually, its management said.

Kim Jaehwan and Ha Sungwoon, former members of the disbanded boy band Wanna One, will also perform at "Good Friends in Manila."

Momoland had its breakthrough in early 2018 with the single "Bboom Bboom," which became a hit here in the Philippines, spawning numerous dance-cover videos.

The group debuted in 2016 with Hyebin, Yeonwoo, Jane, Nayun, JooE, Ahin, and Nancy. Members Daisy and Taeha were added the following year.
