Corona Virus Outbreak
Due to the unfortunate circumstances and health risk, all in-person activities by Open Arms at Welfare Centers have been suspended almost continuously since February 2020. At Lunar New Year’s break in 2021, the kids asked why we didn’t come for so long. It made us all realize how much they look forward to our classes and also miss us when we don’t show up.
During the pandemic, to make sure they know we haven’t forgotten them, Katy and her team have been preparing regular homework packages for each child. You can see some of these, and how pleased the children were, in the photos below. During about 6 weeks of summer 2021 we were able to run limited in-person classes at 2 Welfare Centers, but these have now been moved online due to the uptick in covid 19 cases across the country.
Thank you Katy, and your team, for your extraordinary devotion to the children despite your busy schedule and limited time.

Thank you Katy for your compassion, love and leadership!
Floppy Frogs for Open Arms Korea
Foreign British School teachers and KS3 students within the Global Social Leaders Program are dedicated to the service of others. During the closure of the campus, they sewed an ‘army’ of Floppy Froggies for the Early Years children.
They are sure to bring smiles and entertain the children during this difficult time of isolation. In this age of mass production, it is even more meaningful that each frog was hand made and unique. By educating and empowering children to help each other, the GSLP is creating a community of future global social leaders.
Thank you for all that you do!
