Innovation: We are bold, imaginative and creative.
Community: We are a diverse group of people working together towards a common goal.

We as the Make-A-Wish Foundation® grant the wishes of children with life-threatening deceases between the age of 3 to 18. The wishes are – like the children – very different. Be a pilot and steer an aeroplane, go on a holiday trip with the family, meet a star or just a laptop or smartphone, to stay in touch with friends during the long hours in hospital.

However a wish might look like – the share one thing: When they are granted, children grasp new hope and can forget their worries and sickness for a while.

„Let us not stop granting wishes to sick children. The joy and smiles that we bring to those children have more power than we can imagine.

Prof. Keith Y.C. Goh, MD
