In the meantime she triest to find a way to help Lorena.
Contacting, telephoning, visiting and mailing many doctors, specialists and hospitals, she has a moment of desperation, because many promises done, none kept..
She even tries to approach international tv-programms and producers to see if she can interest them in Lorena’s story, but again many promises and no results.
She contacts the organisation ‘Doctors from the world’, after she saw an advertisement from them, and they also promise to see what they can do, and a long time she does not hear from them.
Than when she sends another mail (slightly disappointed) there is one lady that tells her she will get her in contact the organisation Interplast.
That was a turning point!
After a while of mailing and sending all the medical information from Lorena, Interplast Hollands getsKarin in contact with Interplast Australia/New Zealand.
They are not sure if they can do something for Lorena, but still would like to try and see if she is operable or if there would be a cure for her.
After a while they contact Karin again and ask her if it would be possible for her to come to Baguio in october/november 2013, because than they have a team of doctors in the General Hospital there.
In the meantime Karin has contact with Lorena on Facebook, telling her not to give up, because she will find a way, so please hold on!
The confirmation from Interplast arrives, and Karin starts planning the trip to the Philippines..
A quest for help for Lorena finally succesfull and Karin couldn’t wait to tell Lorena that she was coming, and they did it, and went in 2013!
She starts thinking about her own foundation, being more and more informed and aware about the cruelty towards animals and children.
And as a registered therapist she is also very eager to tell people about the need of living and eating healthy.
Awareness of where our food comes from, what is in it, and what it does for the environment.
A very interesting journey goes on!
