To grant the wish of every eligible child
Make-A-Wish Hong Kong was registered in Hong Kong as a charity (registration number: 91/5366) in 1998 and became a member of Make-A-Wish Foundation International, the world’s largest wish-granting organization with 39 affiliates serving over 50 countries and territories nowadays. Collectively we have realized more than 500,000 wishes worldwide since 1980.
Our mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses aged between 3 and 17, in Hong Kong and Macau, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
A wish creates an opportunity for hope and the ability to experience life beyond illness. Serving as a supplement to medical treatment and complement one another as acknowledged by healthcare professionals, we believe that a Wish Journey – through which a child articulates, refines and realizes his/her wish – will bring a transformative impact not just to the child concerned, but also to the child’s family as they tackle some of their most difficult trials in life. To date, Make-A-Wish Hong Kong has transformed over 2,000 children’s lives. We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true.
