This year, China Sichuan is honored to donate the proceeds of the Wishing Tree to Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services in Harold’s Cross and Blackrock. Founded by Anna Gaynor and the Sisters of Charity in 1879, the Hospice was a response to the smallpox epidemic that was sweeping the country, and was created on the principle that every person, rich and poor, deserves the same quality of dignity and care. 140 years later, it remains true in its commitment to human dignity, community and compassion, while upholding its standards with cutting-edge, modern day research. Thank you to all our Wishing Tree wishers who raised an overwhelming €1013.00 to this valuable institution!
