Evie, Mo and Otis Maslin and their grandfather Nick were killed on MH17.A foundation in memory of Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin – the West Australian siblings who were among those killed in the MH17 tragedy – has been launched to mark 100 days since the Malaysian Airlines plane was shot down.
The foundation will focus on helping children with dyslexia and related learning difficulties through early childhood intervention. The youngest of the Maslin children, eight-year-old Otis, had dyslexia and the fund has been established with the support of their parents, Anthony Maslin and Rin Norris.
It has been started with a $20,000 donation from The Sydney Morning Herald and Peta Credlin, chief of staff to Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Both the fund and initial donation are the idea of Ms Credlin, who was paid the sum as a result of a defamatory letter published in the Herald at the start of the MH17 crisis.
Ms Credlin has worked with Maz and Rin to establish the Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin Foundation as a way to honour the children’s memory and to help other children.
Donations to the fund can be made to The Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin Foundation
