Tributes are pouring in for the victims of a plane crash in Ethiopia.

Six members of the same family, including two teenage sisters, are among the 18 Canadians killed in the plane crash in Ethiopia.

The girls, age 13 and 14, were travelling with their parents and grandparents.

Kosha Vaidya, 37, and her husband Prerit Dixit, 45 were taking their 14-year-old daughter Ashka and 13-year-old daughter Anushka, to Nairobi, along with their parents, Pannagesh Vaidya, 73, and Hansini Vaidya, 67.

The family was traveling to enjoy the March Break and go on safari.

Meantime, the head of the Canadian Wildlife Federation says a recent participant in one of the federation's youth volunteer programs is one of the victims.

"It is with deep sadness that we share the tragic passing of CWF's CCC participant, Angela Rehhorn. Angela was on her way to UNs Environmental Assembly in Nairobi w UNs Association of Canada’s & Canada Service Corps Program when the plane crashed on Sunday. Our thoughts are with you."

Twenty-four-year-old Angela Rehhorn was from Orillia, Ontario.
