2011 was a year of changes..
Karin decided to do more with charity and dedicate her life to what she loves most..
Animals and children, a healthy lifestyle, and peace.
She got acquainted with a Dutch organisation for children in the Philippines.
They invited her to come over for almost a month in may/june to visit childrens villages and projects, and hand out food and schoolsupplies.
It was a very special experience..
Sailing from island to island, watching hundreds of children waiting for Karin with banners.
While approaching the islands with the catamaran she sang her song ‘SHARE’, which she wrote especially for the Philippine children.
Most of the times with tears in her eyes, and a blocked throat..
Unbelievable that these children were standing in line for hours in the burning sun to receive a sandwich and some lemonade out of her hands.
The solidarity from these people and especially children is touching.
One Childrens Village really touched her heart.
On one of the islands a Dutch retired former German tv producer Jürgen had started a village for children where they found a bed, food, education, medical assistance and lots of love.
Again on one of the island journeys she met Lorena..
They became friends right away, and Karin promised her to start searching for possibilities for an operation, or at least to examine her.
Lorena has a huge tumor in her face and head, and growing..
A long and hard fight began.
Doctors, clinics, plastic surgeons, hospitals and organisations.
And with result zero.
Very frustrating, but Karin never gave up!
Back in Holland she performed on several festivals for charity.
Karin was restless and knew there would soon be a change in her life..
Wanting her own foundation came to mind already.
Organisation SPMUDA contacted her and she became interested in the very friendly organisation, with a quest for love and peace.
In the meantime she worked on new songs with new people with beautiful results.
