“Ohana” is the name of an inclusive children's club that has been operating in Seoul (South Korea) for two years now. The club has long become a good friend of the EURSIA KIDS project. On November 18, “Ohana” celebrates its birthday.
Two years is the age when a child is interested in everything. Here is “Ohana” - a place where everyone will find an interesting and useful activity for himself. The club brings together not only children. They come here with families, because in Korean “Ohana” means family. There is something for everyone here: handicraft workshops, fitness for children, mothers and grandmothers, chess and much more..
An important feature is taught to children at “Ohana”: every person in this world is a value and everyone needs to be helped. The story of how “Ohana” made friends and helped the Uzbek boy Bakhtiyor, who was badly injured in the fire, is known in many countries. The boy required numerous surgeries that were not available in his homeland. Bakhtiyor's family is not rich, ordinary workers. And then “Ohana” came to the rescue. Together with friends in social networks, they organized a fundraising and a search for a clinic in Korea. As a result, Bakhtiyor came to Seoul for treatment.
Children from “Ohana” were one of the first who drew the kitten Eurasik, the mascot of the project EURASIA KIDS. He turned out to be different: having big eyes or a sly squint, grey or red, but always very kind.
Friends of “Ohana” live in different countries - Australia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia. This means that the holiday will be celebrated today in many homes of Greater Eurasia.
