“Kaori (right) is from Japan. She’s the new director of Hekab Be Biblioteca. The woman next to me was the translator...so I could communicate with the children. Kaori is excited to have her kids work on art to send to us next year. She suggested we even have the kids Skype, making their connection even more personal.” Suzanne Gray
