A Letter from Yael to Children in Akmuri village of Manokwari

Traveling in Papua is not always about birdwatching, trekking and snorkeling. Sometimes it is more than them. There is another dimension which we can see from the interaction between the tourists and the local Papuan people. Last month I helped two Dutch tourists interpreting a letter from a small girl in the Netherlands for Papuan children in Akmuri village of Kebar valley - the Manokwari regency. It was a nice experience for me because a simple letter which she wrote could develop an emotional connection between children from two different cultures. The name of the Dutch girl is Yael. She helped Wally and Coby in raising money for clean water project in Akmuri village of Manokwari. The objective of the project is to improve the health quality of the villagers expecially the Papuan mothers and children. Here is the video:
