Subject of PPP exchange: "Solidarity with Haiti's children"
We all have been shocked by the situation in Haiti and adults have tried their best to help relieve the pain of the sufferers.
Art in All of Us has been contacted by NGOs active in Haiti who alarmed us on the trauma that thousands of children (orphans or not) are going through. UNICEF is very involved in post-trauma assistance to thousands of children hosted in the street of Port au Prince. Haitian children need to feel they are not alone and that other children from the world think and care for them. Most of them are handicap and suffering heavy trauma. It is important to work with them and connect them to other children of the world who would care for them and sustain them psychologically.
We imagined a great solidarity chain of artistic creation from children of the world aiming at showing their love and support to Haitian children to re-dream their life!
AiA would collect the pictures and scanning of all these creation and get them transmitted to the children in Haiti. In a second phase Haitian children will write them back through their Art.
