Growing up as an expat child in Asia with migrant domestic workers in the house, Karien never asked herself why these women left their own children behind, and crossed a sea to look after her. That question arose later, and in 2012 Karien joined HOME, a charity that supports migrant workers in Singapore. In the following years she worked closely with domestic workers, and listened to their stories that were the inspiration for A Yellow House.
