A dying woman's wish to see Rembrandt masterpieces has been granted, thanks to Dutch charity Ambulance Wens. The charity arranged for a private viewing of the Rijksmuseum's Rembrandt collection for the woman and two other terminally ill patients. "As visually documented on its Twitter account, the nonprofit took the guests to the exhibit, each in an ambulance," reports Open Culture. "The museum-goers were then treated to a one-hour private tour of the collection."
Ambulance Wens was founded by a veteran ambulance driver in 2007, and is dedicated to helping the bed-ridden see their wishes come true. "The charity has fulfilled thousands of wishes, transporting terminally-ill, bedridden patients to their dream destinations aboard a small fleet of customized ambulance trucks," writes Anne Quito at Quartz.
