“Your project is very importante. We can see the love that flows of patient and invades those that heal, and the reciprocity of love that goes to the meet of the patient. The caring is the map to stanch the violence and injustice. Love can put a end to suffering and bring to caring to all humanity”

“Traveling around Brazil giving photography classes and provoking enchantment on students is very romantic! The workshops allow children and young people a time to reflect on a message they want to transmit and to contemplate where they are every day, creating a new perspective. This is something very valuable these days.”
