About Make a Wish
Make a Wish Foundation of India is a non-profit organization, dedicated to granting the most cherished wish of children between the ages of 3 and 18 years, living with life-threatening illnesses, irrespective of their socio-economic status, caste, race or religion.
The foundation fulfils four types of wishes:
1. Travel Wishes: 'I wish to go...' (Within India)
2. Occupational Wishes: 'I wish to be...'
3. Celebrity Wishes: 'I wish to meet...'
4. Gift Wishes: 'I wish to have...'

For children battling life-threatening illnesses the joys of childhood are replaced with a daily battle for survival, painful treatment and medication and endless rounds of hospitals. The fulfilment of the most cherished wish of a child who has very little hope of enjoying a normal, healthy life not only gives happiness and joy to the child but also has a therapeutic effect. Doctors have often reported an improvement in the child’s physical condition, after the fulfilment of their dearest wish. A wish fulfilment makes a sick child believe that anything is possible – even the future.
