According to the results of a 2011 Wish Impact Study that surveyed wish parents, health professionals, and volunteers, a wish come true empowers children with life-threatening medical conditions to fight harder against their illnesses.
When wish kids are granted a wish, they get more than just a great experience for a day, two days, or a week.
That experience improves the quality of life for them and their entire family.
Improved Health Status
A combined 89% of doctors, nurses and health professionals surveyed say they believe a wish experience can influence wish kids’ physical health.
Enhanced State of Mind
99% of parents reported that the wish experience gave their children increased feelings of happiness and 96% said that the wish experience strengthened their families.
95% of community volunteers reported an increased sense of compassion and 84 percent felt an increased faith in humanity.

What We Do
Battling life-threatening medical conditions such as cancer can be an excruciating process which takes a toll on the physical as well as mental health of an individual. As one can imagine, this holds especially true for young children between the ages of 3 and 18 years. At Make A Wish India, we have seen first-hand the potential that the granting of a child’s much-cherished wish holds. In the midst of the painful treatment process they endure, the power it wields is immense.
At times, it provides that much-needed burst of happiness that can make all the difference. At times, it provides comfort and joy to the young angels during their time here. We have seen, time and again, that a Wish holds power, hope and a little bit of magic. More importantly, it can change lives. Here at Make A Wish India, this is what we do- we make wishes come true!
The children we serve at Make a Wish India are critically ill. Through the help of our donors, partners, and volunteers, they find the strength to continue fighting and joy in dark times.
