NGO Profile :
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. The organization commenced its India operations in the year 1995 and operates around the globe in over 50 countries.

According to the results of a 2011 Wish Impact Study that surveyed ‘wish’ parents, health professionals, and volunteers, a wish come true empowers children with life-threatening medical conditions to fight harder against their illnesses. A combined 89% of doctors, nurses and health professionals surveyed believe that a wish experience can influence wish kids’ physical health. 99% of parents reported that the wish experience gave their children increased feelings of happiness and 96% said that the wish experience strengthened their families. 95% of community volunteers reported an increased sense of compassion and 84% felt an increased faith in humanity.

The Foundation believes that having a wish fulfilled brings with it a sense of accomplishment, happiness and positivity which helps the little warriors face their challenges with renewed vigor and strengthens their hope of a bright future. There are several cases where having a wish fulfilled has been the turning point in the kids’ battle for health, and they have responded positively to treatments thereafter. So far, the organization has been able to grant over 67,389 wishes in India alone. The Foundation aims to fulfil 75,000 wishes by 2020.

People from professions as diverse as the armed forces personnel and celebrities, collaborate with Make-A-Wish to make these kids’ wishes come true. There are four wish categories — Wish to be, Wish to have, Wish to meet, and Wish to go. The community, school teachers and parents of the children work towards fulfilling the kids’ ‘Wish to be’ come true. For ‘Wish to have’, there are vendors who supply quality products on time and at reduced rates. Celebrities meet the wish kids under ‘Wish to meet’ category and make the meetings memorable for them. Cox and Kings is the premier partner to make as many travel wishes come true in ‘Wish to go’.
