A team of church representatives from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America pays a solidarity visit to churches, ecumenical organizations and civil society organizations in the Philippines.

Living Letters are small ecumenical teams visiting a country on behalf of the World Council of Churches in order to listen, learn, share approaches and challenges in overcoming violence and in peace making, and to pray together for peace in the community and in the world.

The agenda of the visit to the Philippines includes encounters with victims of human right violations in the country or their relatives, receiving first-hand information on the state of human rights in the Philippines, and recommendations on ways and means for the international ecumenical community to support the active defense of human rights and civil liberties in the Philippines.
