Letter of Embrace 1
In january 2014, the french children from the school Petit-Paris in Brest were asked to make bond paper size drawing with a touch of stickers and words of what they intend to say and intend to show the Manobo children.
In April 2014, the Manobo children are doing the same in response of their creatives letters.
Owing to the slim chances for this children to personally meet and the language barrier to consider, the creatives letters would than be merge together through artistic cauterization to form one artwork with a visual image of a french girl giving comfort to a Manobo boy.

On February 21, 2014, they went to the Trousseau hospital in Paris, to meet french children from association Les P’tits Cracks, who are fighting against cancer.
In turn, the French children made drawings for Manobo who responded to their messages on April 15, 2014.
