Make-A-Wish® in Ireland has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children aged between 3 and 17 years living with a life-threatening medical condition. A wish granted is true magic for the child providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment.
Since its inception in 1992, Make-A-Wish in Ireland has granted wishes for over 1,300 special children and realised their greatest wish and experienced the hope, strength and joy each wish provides. In all possible cases Make-A-Wish grants the child’s first wish ensuring that all immediate family members participate. In doing so it provides long-lasting and happy memories for those relatives, whatever the future may hold.
