This site was originally established to raise funds for Olga Edwards as Olga is a dear member of our Bikram yoga community in West Pennant Hills, Sydney.
Olga’s world was completely shattered on 5 July when her ex husband murdered her two teenage children Jennifer 13 and Jack 15 in their own home. The bewildering horror has shocked all Australians including the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition who spoke publicly about this atrocity.
As Olga was originally from Russia, her only family in Australia was the nurturing and loving family unit she created for her two children in the Sydney suburb of West Pennant Hills. We now recognise that the broader community in our neighbourhood, Sydney and Australia want to support Olga and this site is revised to seek and welcome all donations.
Olga’s life has been irredeemably changed by an unspeakable crime and we as her community want to assist her in her onward journey by removing the burden of financial pressures and to enable her to focus on her healing. Please join us in whatever way you can as funds will provide Olga with some financial certainty in these early days and options for the future. More importantly, it provides us all with the ability to show that we care as a community and hopefully that will be a small balm to Olga’s soul.
Thank you in anticipation of our collaborative efforts for Olga and in memory of much loved Jennifer and Jack.
This site has been established with the acknowledgment and blessing of Olga.
