Mae Berkel

HANS BERKEL became a Rotarian late in life. He was to busy with his patients. and his family.
When he found Rotary Hans fell in love again. I was happy it was not an other woman but an Institution to be proud off . After he became the President of a Rotary Club of 350 people. They asked him to become District Governor. At that time I was a member as well and started the  INNER WHEEL CLUB. it is the women part of Rotary. This group of about 15 ladies helped to set up the farm for an orphanage and school in Kenya. Our money got them 2 cows. Goats and chicken.
We have 3 girls. One an adopted one from Iran where I was for a year teaching English in a mission school. We have 8 grandchildren en 3 great grandchildren.Hans past away more than 3 years ago.
I went yo Bali then to be with my brother Joop who was very sick as well.  In the meantime I helped the personel of the Ramada Bali Bintang Hotel to speak better English and had 154 students. It helped me to get over the loss of Hans.
Then my brother past away now in October 2016 already 1000 days ago. Life goes on and now I am living in Holland but my heart is still partly in Bali and I am so happy that I can still be a member of Rotary Club Bali Kuta
