Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore started in 2002 and is the only wish granting foundation in Singapore. Our mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions between the ages of 3 and 18 years. We believe each wish experience can make a difference to a child’s life and enrich it with hope, strength and joy.
Make-A-Wish is a global organization that was originally founded in 1980 and inspired by 7 year old Chris Grecius who suffered from leukemia and yearned to catch ‘the bad guys’. Chris’ wish was fulfilled when he became Arizona’s first and only honorary police officer. Ever since the day Chris got his wish and spurred the start of a magical vision, many other children have had their dreams come true.
Make-A-Wish Singapore has granted more than 1,200 wishes to date and would like to reach out to every medically eligible child in Singapore. As long as there are children diagnosed with a condition, we are committed to granting their wishes and making them feel better, because sometimes, when they feel better, they will get better.
