Peace for the World’s Children
In memory of my late husband, Frank Q. Solis and little sister Jean Straub.
May we offer to all children A Lifeboat and a Compass, the tools of yoga and story to help us and our families heal.
The Queen of Bohemia, Sydney Solis, puts on free family and children's programs and workshops, and donates books to organizations and libraries around the world to help children and families heal from tragedy.
Tragedy and the scars of war are no stranger to Sydney. Her father is a child survivor of the Ambarawa Japanese Concentration Camp on Java during World War II. Her childhood was filled with her father’s terrible stories of war that scar children and families deeply, and she witnessed the effects of post-traumatic stress on its survivors that are passed down to their children.
Read the incredible story of Sydney’s Father here.
Her husband and sister died by their own hand, and Sydney seeks to inspire and encourage children suffering from the effects of depression, trauma and abuse with the tools of yoga and story.
In the name of children, with yoga and stories we can find peace to end war today.
By finding peace within our own heart we can achieve peace in the world.
Please, donate today to support Sydney and Storytime Yoga's cause!
