The 2020 Team

Thanks to this amazing founding team, Angel’s Wings Children was able to begin its mission to advocate for palliative care!

Their message to you:

Hello! We are a group of teens who hope we can make an impact, no matter how small, on the lives of others. We heard about the opening of Daisy’s Home, Beijing’s first palliative care agency for children, and fell in love with their cause.
