Few words

Any effort made to support our fellow human beings is always an act of the highest solidarity and is made out of pure love.   It makes you transcend your individualism and think collectively. This is also proven by the multiple activities of the Pancyprian Association of Rare Genetic Diseases – Unique Smiles.

In our time some concepts have lost their meaning, so when art becomes the means of expressing social solidarity to support our fellow human beings; it gives us the opportunity to get back in touch with it and through it to offer.

Given this opportunity, I would like to thank the Association for offering me the chance to contribute to this great and powerful effort.
