Below is the painting Wish Fulfilling Tree. Presented to the Welsh Assembly for public dispay
Wish Fulfilling Tree has been presented to the people of Wales in gratitude for their kindness and generosity towards children and the Gesar Foundation. The original of the painting was kindly donated to Gesar by the celebrated artist, Magdalena Rutkowska, inspired by the 2010 recording of the children’s world Anthem by the Caerphilly Male Voice Choir.
The Gesar Foundation, on behalf of the world’s children, wish to thank the Caerphilly Male Voice Choir, Graham Thomas, Hazel Matthews, Catrin Finch, Molly Quarterly, Roy Noble, the BBC and the Welsh Assembly.
It has been brought to our attention, that the Welsh are the only Nation in the world, to employ a children’s charter. A more in depth report will be made about this very soon…
