How It Works

Every Wish Experience Begins With A Referral

You can also help us to transform a child and his/her family’s lives during some of their most difficult trials – as a wish creates an opportunity for hope, strength and joy.

A child must meet the following criteria at the time of referral…

  • Aged between 3 and 17
  • Diagnosed with a critical medical condition, i.e. a progressive, degenerative or malignant condition that is placing a child’s life in jeopardy
  • Receiving medical treatments in Hong Kong or Macau (regardless of nationality and permanent resident of Hong Kong/Macau)
  • Not having had a wish granted by Make-A-Wish Hong Kong or affiliates before

Who Can Refer A Child And How?

We accept wish referrals from doctors, parents/guardian, medical professionals, social workers, volunteers – or even the children themselves! You may download the recommendation form and submit via email, fax or post. You may also contact your doctor or medical social workers for enquiries.

What Can a Child Wish For?

A child’s imagination is at the heart of everything we accomplish together. Spark the imagination and the Wish Team will do everything to create, experience and walk along the Wish Journey with the child. S/he doesn’t need to have a wish in mind to apply; we are happy to catch wishes together with the Wish Children!

Wish Journey Starts!

Once the application is received and approved, the Wish Team will catch the one true wish with the Wish Child. All the child need is to spark his/her imagination and create a unique Wish Journey!

Wish Journey begins!
