20 years of Make-A-Wish

In 1997 Tamara was 8 years old and suffered from an inherited disease that affects the musculoskeletal system. She was the first wish child to have a wish fulfilled in Austria and wanted to go to Disneyland in Paris more than anything in the world.

The experience was so important to her, that today – 20 years later – she is involved as a volunteer in the Make-A-Wish Austria team. In the meantime, we are fulfilling around 100 wishes a year and hope to make many more children happy.  

We believe in the magic of fulfillment of a heart’s desire and we are convinced that it aids in the recovery of the children – sometimes even to an extent that is not medically explainable. We are more than just a smile and a sparkle in the eyes; we want the children to believe in the seemingly impossible and their own inner strength.

We would like to thank all sponsors, supporters, volunteers, doctors and nursing staff who assist us with their time, commitment or financial support to help seriously ill children fulfill their heart’s desire.
