Good taste and harmony are noticeable in  Milady’s room, a refugee that left her home in Venezuela. She left friends, family, everything that was a part of her world, and travelled the whole road to Brazil on foot. On the other side of the border, she received a fraternal welcome, different than what happens in the majority of other countries in the world.

Everything that we see in the video that brightens her room was made by her after what she learned in the shelter through the handicraft and sewing classes organized by the Fraternity – International Humanitarian Federation (FIHF). Besides a roof, water, food, and health care, the Fraternity (FIHF) offers love, attention and care to help them rebuild their lives. Art is also one of the elements that aid in this process. The role of the Fraternity (FIHF) in the shelters is to provide these transformative elements of the consciousness, because after stabilizing the physical world, it is the inner world that must be rebuilt.
