obua Godfrey,
I would be happy to help where I can. Let me know what needs to be done. Maybe resource and service partners to contact. I have experience working with artists and crafts people and a particular interest in being able to work at a distance using art objects to deliver messages using reiterative, meaningful, gentle and persistent tools.

Ron Baum,
Thank you, and you are most welcomed.
I would also like to receive that kind help from you. please feel free to post those messages that can make our ideas more meaningful, clear, and easy to understand, for sure, we lack the resources and service partner for the same, as you have mentioned.
Godfrey obua
