Use an SQL INSERT statement.

But first, make sure your MySQL database and tables are configured to accept those characters. It's not unusual for Latin-1 to be the charset used by MySQL.

Which charset to use ?

UTF-8

Please can you guide me on how to do that ?

MySQL has a detailed step-by-step wizard. When it's about charset you should choose "Best Support For Multilingualism".
