Greeks launch ‘Everything is OK’ website amid economic crisis
Greeks fed up with stories of austerity and gloom can now turn to a new website aptly named Everything is OK (ola kala, OK in Greek) which aims to bring only happy news stories to the population.
Describing itself as an “online health wellbeing portal”, the site www.olakala.gr tells users: “If you want to change your life, come with us.”
Weary Greeks can now seek solace online to learn how to meditate, find out how Germany has made the most of austerity measures and search for jobs and the “solutions to (your) problems” that the site proposes.
Amid the European debt crisis, Greece has been saturated with coverage of spiralling public debt and a possible exit from the eurozone.
Greeks are living under a tough series of austerity measures imposed in return for hefty EU-IMF bailouts in 2010 and 2011.
