Make-A-Wish Foundation® of India is a non-profit organization affiliated to Make-A-Wish Foundation® International, a prestigious foundation which has 37 other affiliates worldwide serving about 49 countries.
The Foundation is 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. It is a registered trust under Bombay Public Trust Act.
The Indian affiliate was established in 1996 and since then we have fulfilled over 25000 wishes across 10 division offices in India.
The foundation fulfils four types of wishes: (i) Travel wish …. I wish to go within India (ii) Occupational wish ……I wish to be (iii) Celebrity wish……I wish to meet (iv) Gift wish ….I wish to have
Share the Power of a Wish: 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 him/her but also has a therapeutic effect on the child. Doctors have often reported an improvement in the child's physical condition, after the fulfilment of his / her dearest wish. A wish fulfilment makes a sick child believe that anything is possible - even the future. We invite you to visit our website www.makeawishindia.org to see documentation of the wish stories and how it has brought about a change in an affected child's life.
Funds raised by Mumbai Marathon 2014 will be utilized to fulfil wishes of children as mentioned above in Annexure II.
The 10year old ACP ......
Aniket Parmar, a resident of Ahmedabad, is a 10year old boy suffering from a life threatening illness.
His innermost wish was to be the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) for a day.
His wish was fulfilled by the Commissioner and Jt. Commissioner of Police in Ahmedabad. Aniket was provided with a complete police officer's uniform and adorned with the rank of ACP. Later he was escorted in the police car with full honor to the Shahibaug police station, where he took charge of his duties as an ACP. Media was invited to interview the new ACP and announcements were made over the local radio station.
As per his school principal, before the wish got fulfilled, he was a very shy and scared type of boy. But after his wish has been fulfilled, he is playing with his friends, sharing his tiffin with them and has become care free that now nothing can happen to me and he can lead a normal life with his friends and family.
