Make-A-Wish Foundation® Singapore's mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experiences with hope, strength and joy. It is their goal to grant a wish to every medically eligible child in Singapore. Working towards that are over 200 volunteers, 10 board members and 6 staff. Their combined efforts, coupled with the support of the generous and much-valued sponsors and supporters brings them closer to that goal every day.
If the child is Singaporean or PR, between the ages of 3 and 18 and has a life-threatening medical condition then he or she will be eligible for a wish.
Their referral sources include:
- Medical professionals treating the child, such as doctors, nurses, or social workers
- A parent or legal guardian of the potential wish child
- The potential wish child
- Friends of the family- so long as the parents have been informed.
Since the launch of our affiliate in 2003, Make-A-Wish has granted over 500 magical wishes.
As a non-profit organisation, Make-A-Wish is constantly seeking to raise more funds so that they can grant 9-11 wishes each month and meet their goal of reaching every medically eligible child in Singapore.
Make-A-Wish's challenge is to increase the number of wishes granted, funds raised, corporate adoptions, awareness and outreach events year on year.
For 2010, our target is to grant 120 wishes. 987FM is proud to adopt Make-A-Wish as our charity, so join us in this endeavour!
