(VOV) -An exhibition entitled ‘Into Karishma’s World’ of Indian girl Karishma Kannan is set to take place in at Sheraton Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City on March 27 as a fund raiser for underprivileged children in HCM City.

24-year-old Kannan was born with the intellectually challenging condition, Down syndrome, and all her developmental milestones were delayed.

Karishma and her family moved to Vietnam for her father’s job in 2008.

An accidental meeting with English teacher Cyndi Beaumont, who is also an artist, changed Kannan’s life.


With Beaumont’s help and guidance she discovered that she had a talent for art, and also that when she paints and draws it improves her concentration skills, something that is notoriously difficult for Down’s sufferers.

Each place she visits in Vietnam or neighbouring countries becomes a favourite place – Ha Long Bay, Nha Trang, Hanoi, Bali and so on. And her memories about these places find expression in her paintings.

She also earlier donated all the money to handicapped children from her two charity painting exhibitions “Sharing the Miracle – Karishma – I can, you can, we can” in 2011 and “Karishma – Colors of love”.
