A walk in the heart of Estonia for the children of Estonia


On 2 June, the non-profit association MTÜ Oma pere, together with Paide town and SEB Charity Fund organised a charity walk in Paide – the heart of Estonia – where people walked together to support the idea that each child should be able to grow up in a safe family.

The athletic family day started at Paide’s Central Square, where everyone started on the up to 5 km long path after the opening of the event by patron Heinz Valk. After the walk, there was something to do at Vallimäe for the entire family: you could listen to a concert, climb on an adventure course, partake in a mediaeval sword fight, visit the time centre, jump on a trampoline, make face paintings, talk to Leo the Lion, and do many other exciting things.

At the same time, the unique Oma Pere photo exhibition “Children are born in the heart” – with photos by Katrina Tang – was open in the culture centre, presenting a cross-section of different Estonian families joined by a remarkable contribution towards children without parental care. The manifesto read by Heinz Valk, dedicated to all children in Estonia, added dignity to the day: “For Estonia to develop into a good civil society, the will, faith and care of all families is needed. We believe it is best for every child to grow up together with their parents; but, if this is not possible, a new family must be found for the child. We call on all people to notice children without parental care and provide them with safe and loving relations that last a lifetime. We support people who wish to help children who have no parents and home.”
