EstherSita Anthonyraj Achari is the beloved daughter, sister, and friend who passed away on December 27th 2017.  She was involved in a tragic accident in Richmond, BC involving a Canada Post Semi Truck.

Esther came to Canada in hopes of fulfilling her family's dreams.  She was a nurse back home at Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai, India.  She had been going to school for over a year to get her nursing license in Canada.  She just recently got her care aid license and was working at Minoru Residency part of the Richmond Long-term care facility.  She was in her final stages of exams to obtain her Canadian RN license.  Her parents had sold their family home to send Esther to Canada.  After finally being employed fulltime Esther insisted on her parents buying an apartment and started taking care of their needs.   This loss has affected her parents beyond what words can describe.  

Her college friends adored and cared for her as if Esther was their own sister.  She was most cautious one out of the bunch.  They are shocked that this would happen to her.  "She is the type to take a long way around, just to follow the rules."

The college, the tamil association, and family members are raising money to lift the burden of the funeral expense on the parents in India.  We are trying hard to send her remains by flight to India in a timely manner so that her parents can rest her in peace.

Sathiyabama Rajaratnam has been appointed by the parents and brother to take care of the needful things in Canada to send Esther back to India.  As such she has been appointed the beneficiary of this campaigne.  She will utilize the monies collected for funeral arrangements, and the remaining money to be sent to her parents.  We all hope that this will relieve some of the financial burden of the family, after this great tragic loss.

Thank you for your support.

We are in constant contact with Esther' s parents in India, they find comfort in knowing people are giving so much support. They have given Sathiabama Rajaratnam authorization to do the needful on their behalf in Canada.
Sathia will be making the arrangements for sending Esther' s remains to India. She is also arranging a memorial service for friends and family to attend that are in Canada. I will keep you posted on dates and times. Thank you everyone for your support.
