Kintsugi Hope is a charity based in the UK striving to make a difference to people's mental wellbeing.
"Kintsugi' (金継ぎ) is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The word means 'golden joinery'in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken.
