“People from Friends Peace Teams came, not to talk about a program or based on the decisions of someone else, they came to visit. In our language we say ‘silaturahmi.’ Like we’re family. You visit family to see how they are, to strengthen connections and create unity. If family has trouble, we talk about how to face it together. That’s the purpose of Friends Peace Teams, to connect people from around the world who pay attention to making peace in the world.”
