Make-A-Wish Foundation (America) CEO, Richard Davis has indicated that they will discriminate against dying children on the basis of their vaccination status. Even the families of dying children will need to ensure they are vaccinated to be able to participate in any wish-giving activities. All though proof of vaccination will not be required for the moment, all adults must sign a letter of understanding stating they are vaccinated.
If you are unaware of what Make-A-Wish Foundation does this is from their about section “Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Our mission is to grant the wish of every eligible child – a quest sparked by the belief that a wish is integral to a child’s treatment.”
I’ve reached out to Make-A-Wish Foundation (Australia) for comment to see if they will be following in the footsteps of their American counterpart.
What are your thoughts on this “new normal”? Should only the vaccinated children with a critical illness be granted wishes?
