Thank you so much to everyone from SOS- Hermann Gmeiner International School-Monrovia Liberia for these colourful pieces which we received today in the post along with a letter with a description of each drawing and this letter from Mr. Emmanuel A. Kyei
This letter explains how Liberia has been emerging from the doldrums of fourteen years of civil war, and sees the promotion of World Peace as a PRIORITY.
“I wish you could see the excitement with which the children crafted those peace drawing!!:) You will be more excited to know that these children actually started the discussion of the meaning and the significance of their drawings with us as we guided them,”
